Rain cuts short Hughes' outing

Phil Hughes pitched a 1-2-3 first inning against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla. After that, the rains came and the Yankees didn't want to take a chance.

According to Peter Abraham, Hughes threw 30 more pitches under cover.

Apparently the game was called unofficially after 1 1-2 innings, as the two managers shook hands. However, the teams are back on the field and are in the top of the fifth inning. Scott Patterson relieved Hughes and pitched a scoreless second inning.

Kei Igawa has pitched two scoreless innings, striking out two and not allowing a hit.

Shelley Duncan went 2-2 with an RBI before being replaced. He is now 6-9 with eight RBI so far this spring.

All of today's starters for the Yankees are out of the game.
