Phil Hughes got off to a tough start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Phil Hughes had a tough start Friday against the Indians.

Hughes allowed four runs on 10 hits over seven innings. He struck out five and did not issue any walks during the outing. Hughes gave up two of his runs in the fourth inning. With two outs, Hughes allowed a double, followed by two run scoring singles. Michael Brantley added to the scoring in the sixth, by hitting a solo home run to lead things off. Hughes allowed his final run in the seventh. After a leadoff double, Michael Bourn was able to plate a run with a sac fly. 

The Twins managed a comeback, giving Hughes the no-decision. He’ll take on the Tigers in his next start.

Phil Hughes settles for no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Phil Hughes wasn't a factor into the decision Saturday at home against the Angels. He allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out eight over seven innings of an 8-5 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 22 2/3 innings, Hughes has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 3.55 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 29 starts (187 2/3 innings). His next start will come Friday in Chicago against the White Sox.

Phil Hughes lasts eight innings in win vs. Orioles
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Phil Hughes picked up a win Monday, giving up three unearned runs on five hits in eight innings and striking out five in his team's 6-4 victory over the Orioles.

Hughes (15-9) served up a three-run home run with two outs in the seventh after an error had been committed earlier in the inning. The pitcher ended a string of quality starts in his last outing but bounced back nicely on Labor Day. Hughes owns a 3.54 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 157:15 K:BB ratio in 180 2/3 innings. Since 1900, only two pitchers have qualified for the ERA title while posting a K:BB ratio of 10.0 or better (Bret Saberhagen, 1994; Cliff Lee, 2010). Hughes will look to remain on track to join that group when he faces the Angels Saturday.

Keep the faith with Phil Hughes
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Phil Hughes was cruising along Wednesday at Kansas City until the Royals rallied for six runs, the first four off him, in the eighth inning. As a result, Hughes didn't meet the criteria for a quality start, but that doesn't mean he wasn't quality.

Of course, considering he allowed just one earned run in each of his previous four starts, winning all of them, Fantasy owners probably don't need to be convinced of his utility by now, but as has been the case in just about all of his poor starts this year, home runs weren't the cause of his downfall Wednesday, as they were so many times in his days with the Yankees. He didn't allow any in that start and has allowed just three in his last 10 -- four of which were less than quality.

As Al Melchior has pointed out time and time again, Hughes has become the strike-throwingest (well, how would you put it?) starting pitcher in the majors this year -- and by a wide margin. Between that and his dramatically reduced home run rate, you wonder how he's ever less than quality.

For all the success he's had this year, you could argue he's been unlucky still.
