Sox Start Roadstand on Good Note

Last night, the Red Sox beat the Orioles 3-1, giving Clay Buchholz his 6th win of the season, as he is 6-3. Buchholz has been amazing, especially against the AL East, as he is 6-1 against the AL East, and 0-2 against everyone else. Last night, Buchholz pitched 6 innings, giving up 1 run, and striking out only 1. The one run he gave up was a majestic homer off the bat of Luke Scott in the bottom of the second. But the Sox had already gotten an RBI single by Casey Kotchman, then Bay answered Scott with a crushed homer to left, before leaving the game in 5th because of sickness. His replacement, Josh Reddick (a rookie) got a single and scored a run on an Ellsbury single, to make it 3-1 in the sixth. The Yankees lost last night on a majestic, 2-run walk-off homer by Ichiro Suzuki, giving the Mariners the 3-2 win. The Sox are 87-59, 6 back from the AL East, and 7 ahead of the Rangers.

  1. Great post! You really captured the excitement of both the Red Sox vs. Orioles and Yankees vs. Mariners games.

    Clay Buchholz is really coming along this season. It's nice to see him maturing. And then there is Bay ... what can you say. He has been a great acquisition!
