Hughes pitches a complete game to win over Verlander.  Starters show improvement, but hitters still don't.

Bard walks 6 and hits two in 2 innings.  O's and Jays slide.  Rays headed into NY.

Toronto      BA: 244,  Ba-risp: 274   + 30
Baltimore    BA: 248,  Ba-risp: 242   - 6
Tampa Bay  BA: 236,  Ba-risp: 229   - 7

Yanks have decided that sac flies, moving runners along and hits with runners on are for wussies - from now on, HRs are for real men.  The only runners in scoring position are the ones at bat. Screw small ball.
