Phil Hughes had his longest outing so far this season, tossing 7 2/3 innings of six-hit, one-run ball as the Yankees downed the Seattle Mariners 6-2 in the Bronx on Saturday.

Hughes struck out four, improving to 3-4 and lowering his ERA to 5.50. Boone Logan relieved Hughes, working the final 1 1/3 innings to pick up his first save, the third Yankee this week get his first save as manager Joe Girardi continues to shuffle the deck at the end of games.

New York scored four times in the second inning off the M’s Hector Noesci – whom they acquired from the bombers in the off-season, along with Jesus Montero, for Michael Pineda.

Raul Ibanez drove in two on two hits, including his seventh long-ball, while Jayson Nix lifted a two-run shot over the wall in right field for his first big league blast.

Andy Pettitte returns to the mound on Sunday for his first major league start since coming out of retirement. He’ll face Kevin Milwood (0-4) with a 1:05 game time.
