Just got back from the Yankees game. They completed the three game sweep of the Astros, winning 9-5. Phil Hughes wasn't great today, but he did good enough to get his ninth win. You could tell from the first inning that he didn't have his best stuff. In that inning, he gave up one run on a sac fly. They also hit a couple of balls pretty hard. Overall, he pitched 5.2 innings giving of five runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out nine. His real trouble came in the sixth inning when he gave up a two RBI hit to Tommy Manzella (who can apparently only hit Yankees pitchers) and a long home run to Kevin Cash, of all people.
On the offensive side, Jorge Posada crushed his second grand slam in two days. Robbie Cano also hit his 13th home run. The rain really made this game annoying, but it was still very enjoyable. All in all, a great win for the good guys.
