Does Phil Hughes feel the pressure of being down 0-2 as he prepares for his Game 3 start?
"I don't really feel like I can feel any added pressure just because of the circumstances. I just have to go out there and pitch, that's all it boils down to, not really worry about being down 0‑2; that Verlander is on the mound; that we don't have our captain. Those sort of things are going to be wasted energy, and all I really want to focus on is the Detroit Tigers lineup and doing the absolute best job I can do. ... You're going to get a little more adrenaline from that. Obviously we don't want to go into the series over there down 0‑2, but there's nothing we can do about that now. I just have to go into Detroit, put together a good start and trust our guys are going to score some runs. I do enjoy that pressure and the opportunity, and I'm looking forward to it."
