A's 1 3 0

WP: Hughes (2-0)
LP: Sheets (1-1)
S: Rivera (6)

Player of the Game: Phil Hughes. That has to be one of the easier decisions ever. 7.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 10 K's? I'd take that from CC, but from the 5th starter that's just icing on the cake. This was the second time in three years Hughes has taken a no-hitter deep into a game. So I guess it's third time's a charm next time.

Play/Turning Point of the Game: Robinson Cano's RBI triple in the fourth inning. Cano is obviously loving hitting in the five-hole, and he just keeps driving in runs, giving Hughes the little support he needed.

  • One of the big "debates" before the season was which team had a better rotation. Well, let's see. After tonight, Hughes has a better ERA than Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and John Lackey. You tell me who has a better rotation.
  • With the win tonight, the Yanks win their 5th straight series to start the season. And they go for the sweep tomorrow (actually today at this point.)
