Phil Hughes showed how fortunate the New York Yankees are to have him toward the back of their rotation.

He was sharp for seven innings, helping New York beat the Detroit Tigers 8-0 on Wednesday to split a day-night doubleheader.

Hughes (5-0) gave up five hits, struck out eight and extended his undefeated streak to 10 games.
