Buchholz Does Not Pitch, Red Sox Lose Anyway, 7-5

Joe Kelly pitched well enough to lose on Friday night—and, sure enough, his team did. After flirting with a no-hitter in his last outing, he was (once again) victimized by the Blue Jays in an ultimate 7-5 loss. Kelly put The Carmine Hose in a 5-2 hole, which Boston battled back from to gain a 5-5 tie in the eighth inning (on a two-run single by Christian Vazquez and a run-scoring single by Travis Shaw). But, Koji Uehara yielded a 2-run HR in the 9th to seal Boston's fate.
