Home runs haunt Hughes
Tigers 5, Yankees 4
Phil Hughes allowed only four hits on Sunday, but three were homers. (Duane Burleson/AP)
 Giambi's solo home run
 Cano's three-run home run
Phil Hughes retired 11 of the last 12 hitters he faced, but the three homers he allowed in the first three innings were all the Tigers needed to edge the Yankees. Jason Giambi homered in the second inning, and Robinson Cano made it a one-run game with a three-run shot in the fourth.
