Clay Buchholz (right) was very good, allowing just a run and 2 hits in 5 innings. He earned the win, and he is now 6-3/3.48/60. In relief, Alfredo Aceves pitched 1 2/3 innings, allowing just the home run to Kotchman before Daniel Bard threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Jonathan Papelbon eventually recorded his 13th save of the season. Darnell McDonald didn't have a great day, but he had a run and an RBI, despite only going 1-5. Dustin Pedroia went 1-4 with a run and an RBI double. Adrian Gonzalez (left) had a nice day indeed, going 2-3 with the solo homer, as he is now .347/14/61, as he's been great in a Red Sox uniform. Tonight, the Red Sox will head back to Fenway, to face the Brewers in inter-league play, as they will send John Lackey (4-5/7.41/29) against former Blue Jay, Shaun Marcum (7-2/2.68/83).
