Papi, Buchholz Dominate to Split Series

Last night, the Red Sox defeated the Royals 10-3, earning them a split series after losing the first two. David Ortiz and Clay Buchholz dominated in this one. Ortiz hit a homer, along with 3 RBIs, in the last game, Big Papi hit a homer and 4 RBIs, he is on a roll right now. He currently is hitting .237 with 26 homers, and 91 RBIs, which is amzing after the way he started the season. Buchholz was another top story as he threw 6.2 scoreless innings while striking out 8, he is now 7-3 with a 3.21 ERA and 58 Ks, he started out the season 1-3, but has not gotten a loss in quite a while. This was his first win against any team not in the AL East. The Sox square off at Yankee Stadium tonight as they look to beat the Yanks with Lester going to the hill tonight.

  1. Always nice to see Papi back in the saddle. And Buchholz is developing into a really solid member of the starting rotation.

    Looking forward to a mop-up of the Yankees!
