Coming off an embarassing 5-12 defeat to the Royals, the Sox responded with their ace... not Jon Lester, not Josh Beckett, not John Lackey, but Clay Buchholz (right)!!! He threw 7 shutout innings in a 1-0 win over the Royals, and he is now a remarkable 7-3/2.73/47, those are very good stats. They scored their one run on an RBI groundout by Mike Lowell, he is now .239/1/10. Adrian Beltre had a pretty bad game, he left 5 runners on base in a 1-3 game, he has been amazing at .342/5/42 as that batting average stands at 4th in the AL. Today, at 1:35, Jon Lester (5-2/3.15/72) toes the rubber against Bruce Chen (1-0/2.89/9). The Red Sox are coming off of a win and last year, they rocked Bruce Chen for 3 runs and 6 hits in 3 innings.
