Hughes got a hold in Tuesday's win over the Braves despite giving up a run on a double and a walk while recording two outs.
Hughes did record a huge strikeout and then got some help from Amir Garrett to finish out the eighth inning. Hughes now has three holds on the season, while posting a 6.52 ERA and 1.66 WHIP.
Hughes got the win Saturday after recording the final two outs in the seventh inning against the Cardinals.
After allowing a run on Opening Day, Hughes has allowed one more run in his subsequent six outings. For now he appears to be behind David Hernandez in the pecking order to be the primary set-up man in front of Raisel Iglesias.
