Phil Hughes earns 15th win
New York Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings at Fenway Park Thursday, striking out seven and earning his 15th win. Hughes, second in the big leagues with 33 home runs allowed, avoided that pitfall against the Red Sox, his first time doing so in nine outings. Hughes' WHIP is a palatable 1.25, his strikeout rate is useful, and he's available in a third of ESPN leagues.
