Take a Bow, Mr. Hughes

The savior lived up to his moniker tonight, literally saving the Yankees season. Hughes showed tremendous poise keeping the Yankees in the game after Cy Old staked the Indians to an early lead.

If Bruce Froemming had an IQ over 45, this series would be 2-1 Yankees right now.

One note: Joba Chamberlain looked genuinely tired in his second inning, with his velocity significantly down. I know this was an elimination game, but did he have to go two innings? Now he can't pitch tomorrow night, when it might actually be a close game.
