Phil Hughes started the first game of today's doubleheader for Trenton (to make up for yesterday's rain-out), and he's cruising through 5 innings
5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 WP
His control has been better than his last start it seems. The lone run he's given up was with 2 outs (after back-to-back called strike 3's to start the inning), and resulted from a single, a wild pitch then another single - so they didn't exactly pound him.
In case you were wondering, the team he's facing (Portland) is middle-of-the-pack offensively
, sporting a line of .239-.319-.349-.668.
Go gettem' Phil.Update
: Thaaaaaaa Thunder wins! Hughes gets a no decision, but goes 6, gives up 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER and 1 BB while K'ing 5. Hughes also gave up a solo HR, only the second HR he's given up as a pro. Not bad Phil, not bad at all.
