Seriously though,it was great to see Hughes do well and not get unnerved if runners got on. Yes the Mariners suck but there have been games this season where they have mashed the ball. Same goes for the ROyals. These outings should help Hughes build up for when he faces the tougher lineups.
Solid outing, even against the weak Mariners lineup. Even against the weaker hitting teams Hughes would of been gone by the 4th or 5th inning, so it's nice seeing him go deep into the game. This has to be looked upon as a positive sign for Hughes.
