day-night doubleheader.

Hughes (5-0) struck out eight. Joba Chamberlain pitched the

eighth and Mariano Rivera closed the game.

Jeremy Bonderman (1-2) struck out a season-best seven in a

who walked and stole second.

Detroit won the opener 2-0 thanks to pitcher Rick Porcello and a

two-run sixth.
