New York Yankees righty Phil Hughes got his 15th win of the season after throwing 7 1/3 innings and Derek Jeter tied Willie Mays for the 10th spot on Baseball's all-time hits list, helping the Bronx Bombers defeat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Thursday night at Boston's Fenway Park.

Rafael Soriano got his 38th save of the season, allowing just one hit and striking out one of four batters faced in an inning.

Boston starter Felix Doubront carried the loss after allowing four hits, two earned runs and five walks, striking out five in 6 1/3 innings.
