Clay Buchholz (top right) was pretty sharp for the most part in today's outing, throwing one-run ball over 5 1/3 innings, earning the win and making him 1-2/5.31/10 on the young season. Daniel Bard threw 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief while Bobby Jenks and Jonathan Papelbon each allowed a run in a third and two thirds of an inning, respectively. Jed Lowrie had another great game, going 2-4 with a home run and 2 RBIs. Kevin Youkilis did well also, going 2-4 with an RBI as he has been hot of late. Carl Crawford and J.D. Drew each went 1-4 with an RBI, except J.D. Drew's came on a home run. Tomorrow, the Red Sox will play in Los Angeles, and send Josh Beckett (2-1/1.80/23) against the Angels and rookie Tyler Chatwood (1-1/3.75/6) at 10:05 EST.
