Yankees blow out White Sox 9-1 behind strong pitching

Despite Phil Hughes mysteriously exiting this one after throwing just 1.1 scoreless innings, the Yankees easily beat the White Sox today, 9-1. Now honestly, I have no idea why Hughes left. He didn't appear to be hurt and he definitely wasn't struggling. But really, who cares?

Eight of the Yankees nine runs in this one came in the fourth, when Mark Reynolds had an RBI Single, Austin Romine had a two-run single, Brett Gardner had an RBI Double, Derek Jeter had an RBI Single, Alfonso Soriano had an RBI Double, and two unearned runs scored on a throwing error by Adam Dunn. That inning was a memorable one, and one that could turn out to be much more important down the stretch. But for now, this is just win. The job to make the playoffs is not yet done.
