He threw 50 pitches, 27 of them for strikes. He allowed two 2-run homers, both in the 2nd inning. He's had control issues all Winter, and it's something he's obviously going to need to work on.

He struck out the next batter, but that was followed by a 2-run homer by Chad Huffman to give the Americans a 2-0 lead. The next batter doubled, and that was followed by another 2-run homer by Josh Reddick to make the score 4-0. Hughes then gave up a walk with the runner stealing 2nd base.
