New York Yankees SP Phil Hughes said he needs to reduce his pitch counts during games and thinks being more aggressive with his pitch selection should help the situation. "I just have to be more aggressive, kind of go back to what I really want to do as a pitcher, and that's attack early and finish guys off. Just do all the little things that make a successful outing, pounding the strike zone, getting early outs and go from there," Hughes said. He is averaging around 23 pitches per innings this season.
