NEW YORK (AP) — Phil Hughes pitched eight shutout innings of four-hit ball for his first win of the season, and the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Saturday.
Chris Stewart and Lyle Overbay homered against Bartolo Colon, sending the A's to their only loss in the right-hander's six starts this year. Hughes (1-2) struck out nine and outpitched his former New York teammate for his first victory since Sept. 20 against Toronto.
Travis Hafner and Brett Gardner each had an RBI single for the Yankees, who bounced back from a 2-0 loss to A.J. Griffin in the series opener Friday night and improved to 7-2 on their 10-game homestand.
Oakland has dropped 10 of 15 after opening the season 12-4.
