Buchholz Pitches Better (Sort Of), Still Loses

For the Red Sox to be 7-4 with inconsistent starting pitching and occasional offense is nothing short of a miracle. Both deficits were on display today as Clay Buchholz gave up 11 hits (and somehow only two runs) in six innings of spotty work and the offense eked out 7 hits (six from two players) in a 4-1 lossDavid Ortiz and Brock Holt (of course) has three hits apiece, but Boston's offense (just 4 hits last night despite the win) is sputtering (four runs in the last 18 innings). Be thankful they're in first place—they don't really deserve to be there.
