Clay Buchholz is making it tough on the Red Sox regarding the composition of the starting rotation. The lanky Texan delivered another excellent starting pitching performance—going 6 1/3 solid innings and giving up just one earned run in Boston's 2-1 win. He walked two and struck out nine—yielding just five hits. The Carmine Hose only had five hits themselves—with David Ortiz providing hitting and hustle on the basepaths. Mookie Betts gunned down a runner at third to continue the great OF play by 'The Killer B's'. The win kept Boston in a first-place tie with the Blue Jays—and maintained their two game edge on Baltimore.
