Hughes picked up a win Friday night after hurling two scoreless innings in Pittsburgh's win over the Mets in 11 innings. He allowed one hit, and struck out three in the outing.
Hughes (4-2, 1.80 ERA) has been a consistent performer in the Pirates' pen and with Jason Grilli having been dealt earlier in the day, may see even more high leverage situations going forward. He won't see many save opportunities as long as Mark Melancon is doing the job, but the primary set-up role may be within reach if Ernesto Frieri's struggles continue even after moving east from Anaheim.
