Offense enough for Hughes
Yankees 8, Orioles 5
Phil Hughes allowed two runs or fewer for the third consecutive start. (Kathy Willens/AP)
 Matsui's home run
 Abreu's RBI double
Phil Hughes allowed two runs in a 33-pitch first inning, but he quickly found a rhythm to help the Yankees earn just their fourth win in 13 games against the Orioles this season. Hideki Matsui hit his first homer since Aug. 8 as the Yanks picked up a game on the Red Sox and Tigers, who both lost.
