Ouch. Sunday night, ESPN HD, Red Sox-Yanks... and Phil Hughes throws up all over the mound. He lasted just 2 innings, walking 3 in addition to giving up 6 hits and 6 runs (7 total, one was unearned).
At least he didn't have to face David Ortiz (.070 AVG), who needed a "mental health day." Poor timing; he surely could have hit Hughes... everyone else did.
Dice-K wasn't exactly lights out for the Sox, allowing 4 runs in 5 innings. And although he struggled with his control (6 walks), he pitched well enough to record his third win of 2008.
