In his last start for the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona fall league, Phil Hughes was, in a word, dominating.
5 IP 2H 0BB 0ER 10K. 53 of his 76 pitches were strikes, and he was again hitting the mid 90's with his fastball.
Overall, Hughes threw 30 total innings in Arizona, allowing 21 hits, 13 BB, 38K while pitching to a an even 3.00 ERA and a .198 BAA.
Considering he allowed 7 ER in 2 2/3 innings in one of his starts, he was really quite good overall.
Hughes finishes his disappointing 2008 season with a total of 112 innings pitched, meaning provided he stays healthy he'll be allowed to go to the 150 inning plateau next season.
A very positive end to a less than positive season.
