Clay Buchholz (right) pitched very well, allowing 2 runs in 7 innings, striking out 7, and only allowing 5 hits. He earned the win, and is now 4-3/3.94/30, as he has been really good since a bad starter. Daniel Bard and Jonathan each allowed a run in an inning, earning a hold and a save, respectively. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-5 and scored a run, while Dustin Pedroia went 1-3 while scoring a run. Adrian Gonzalez (left) went 1-3 with a home run, and 2 RBIs. Kevin Youkilis only wet 1-5, but he scored 2 runs, and had 2 RBIs on a big home run. Tonight, Josh Beckett (2-1/1.99/40) and C.C. Sabathia (3-2/2.89/44) will go up in a tough matchup.
