WASHINGTON, June 15 (UPI) -- Curtis Granderson had three RBI Friday and Phil Hughes struck out a season-best nine over six innings in lifting the New York Yankees over Washington 7-2.

Granderson finished off a four-run seventh inning with a two-run double and then added a solo homer in the ninth, his 20th of the season.

The Yankees gave Manager Joe Girardi his 500th career victory while halting Washington's six-game winning streak, its longest of the year.

Alex Rodriguez also singled in a run in the third, giving him 1,924 RBI for his career. That ties him with Jimmy Foxx for the sixth most in major league history.

Hughes (7-5) allowed a run on six hits over six innings. He is 4-0 over his last five starts.

Gio Gonzalez (8-3) suffered the loss, giving up three runs on five hits in six-plus innings.
