Hughes' stuff there, but gets shelled

No, those weren’t “Huuuughes” chants ...

Phil Hughes exited to boos after giving up a three-run bomb to Howie Kendrick with one out in the fourth inning.

Hughes’ line: 3.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 HR, 2 BB, 6 SO 84 pitches

Hughes had good stuff on Saturday -- his fastball was humming in the 92-94 mph range -- but he couldn’t finish anyone off when he got ahead.

It will be interesting to hear what the manager has to say after this debacle.

More coming, obviously ...
