Yanks win as Hughes goes six, Giambi slams and Ohlendorf debuts

- Phil Hughes pitched well and won his 3rd game of the year. The YES gun had him at 90-93 mph most of the game, with a few 94s (mostly in the early innings). Despite getting saved by some good defense in the 2nd (from Damon and Melky), he still pitched very well, and quite frankly, that good luck makes up for some of the bad luck he’s suffered through in a lot of previous starts. With more experience will come better command, and if he can go 6 ip, 1 er with inconsistent command, imagine when he has his terrific command – which from his minor league career we know can be truly exceptional. Jason Giambi hit a 5th inning Grand Slam to break the game open. Edwar pitched a scoreless 7th and 8th with five Ks.

- WCBS Radio in New York conducted a good interview with Brian Cashman. He talks about Ross Ohlendorf (among others), who made his ML debut tonight, pitching a perfect inning with a strikeout. His velocity was good, ranging from 90-95, and showed a sharp slider.
