Apr 28 – Losing Momentum: Yanks Fall to Tigers 4-2

Fall Below .500 and Turn to Phil Hughes for Help

baseball3(Detroit, MI) – Well the Yanks 3-game winning streak to get to 9-6 is now a fond memory as the Bombers dropped their fourth in a row in a combination game of a post-Boston hangover and a return to greatness by Detroit’s Justin Verlander.  Verlander regularly reached 97 MPH and just threw strikes and the Yanks really could not do much

with them, scoring their only runs (2 of them)  in the 9th off of reliever Fernando Rodney.

C.C. Sabathia had a decent start going 8 innings in total but made some mistakes to Polanco and Ordonez, who garnered his second dinger of the year.  It was registered as a complete game for C.C. albeit the loser.  For the Yanks, Robby Cano continued his hot hitting going 2-4 with a double and run scored.

So now it is on to Phil Hughes who has pitched well in Scranton but is now back in the bigs and gets his chance.  He’s only 22 but it seems like he’s been around forever.  With Boston starting to surge like the 1998 Yanks it is important to start to right the ship and keep pace.

  1. Hughes pitching well. Let’s hope he maintains it.

  2. Phil Hughes must step up to be a major league pitcher! Phil Hughes dominated at every level in the Yankees system. Phil Hughes got the only win versus the Cleveland Indians in 2007 in the playoffs. Phil Hughes got potential to be a number two or three starter but he must be healthy and don’t nibble in the strike zone. Brian Cashman didn’t want to give up Phil Hughes for Johan Santana then who does Brian Cashman want to give up Phil Hughes for?

  3. In Hughes we trust…

    This guy shouldn’t be in the minor leagues any longer…he has dominated at pretty much every level the Yankees have ever put him at….Either put him into the rotation or think of possibilities of dealing him…I prefer to keep him at this point- He is not even 23 yet- so I haven’t given up on his potential…

    He still has alot to prove at the ML level though…I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has been plagued by injuries so far in his career but now is the time to step up…Yanks need him…
