McHugh struck out three, ending the game with a 4.01 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: McHugh needed six starts since coming back from an elbow injury to pick up his first win since last October, though he's mostly pitched well following his return. The right-hander has allowed two runs or less in four of his last five starts, and there should be more victories in his near future.

McHugh struck out six, ending the game with a 4.88 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: McHugh pitched effectively in his fifth start since a shoulder injury put him on the 60-day disabled list, but he was outdueled by Arizona ace Zack Greinke. McHugh has given up two runs or fewer in three of his past four starts. He could be a good play Saturday against Oakland, the AL's worst hitting team. McHugh is 6-1 with a 3.02 ERA in nine career starts versus the A's.
