Hughes the Unhittable, Myers the Ruiner

In just his second ever major league start, as a call up no less, Phil Hughes pitched the best game he may ever pitch in his career, only to see it fall short by injury and Mike Myers.
Hughes took the mound against the Texas Rangers and pitched a no-hitter through six and a third before leaving the game due to an injury. He faced one batter over the limit allowing three walks while striking out six.
After throwing his 83rd pitch of the night, Hughes injured his left leg and despite him remarking that he was OK, was removed from the game.
Mike Myers came in to replace him and promptly closed out the inning giving the Yankees a full seven innings of no-hit ball.
And seven is what all they get.
Myers allowed the first hit of the game to Hank Blalock who scored on Ian Kinsler's double to end the shut out.
The Yankees, back by Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada, provided the offense to win the game 10-1

What would have happened if Hughes stayed in the game? Whatever the answer, he has certainly lived up to the hype as being one of the top prospects in the minors.

The injury to Hughes is diagnosed as a left hamstring sprain and will be out 6-8 weeks.

    Hughes out 6-8 weeks = 2 fantasy teams ruined for me.

    Nice to see somebody else on the "Mike Myers must go" bandwagon (I only discovered your site recently, so I have no idea if you've hated him as long as I have~). The dude's a menace to ERA's everywhere. I continuously call him "The WHIP Murderer" for good reason.

    I am a member of the "Mike Myers Must Go" team.
    I like your WHIP Murderer name, I may use that one day.
