Phil Hughes (5-5) threw the Yankees’ first nine-inning complete game of the year, allowing just four hits and one run on Sunday to beat Justin Verlander and the Tigers 5-1 at Comerica Park.

Hughes struck out eight in a 123 pitch outing, the longest of his career, with Prince Fielder chewing up his only mistake of the day for his ninth home run.

Derke Jeter led off the game against Verlander with a homer and Alex Rodriguez added a solo-shot in the third, his ninth, as each had two hits on the afternoon.

Verlander (5-4) surrendered nine hits and five runs (3 earned) in 6 1/3 innings.

Mark Teixeira had a sac-fly and Robinson Cano added an RBI triple, coming all the way around to score on Danny Worth’s throwing error.

The pinstripes (29-24) are off Monday before opening a series with the Rays in the Bronx on Tuesday.
