Hughes had a two-game stretch when he didn't look very good: a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox on May 17 (five earned runs in five innings) and loss to the Mets on May 22 (four earned runs and eight hits in 5.2 innings).

But since those two games, Hughes has dominated the Cleveland Indians and Orioles:
