Today the Red Sox play a double dip and the first one is in the bag. I am happy to report that it is a beautiful day in Boston and the boys are finally getting in some good baseball on a very pivotal weekend match up against the Tampa Bay Rays. This card came to me just recently from Adam at Thoughts and Sox. A perfect card to represent Clay Buchholz first of hopefully many no-hitters to come. I like the kid a lot and I am glad that he is finally getting his moment to shine, and boy has he ever taken advantage of it in his last several games. Clay pitched another magnificent game this morning under the sunny Boston skies and guiding the Red Sox to a much needed win over the Rays, virtually closing the post-season door on them as well as adding some serious heat to the Texans, who have been having a heckuva time trying to get some games in vs the sub-mariners. This was a no-decision due to an excellent game pitched by Matt Garza, but still a big win for the team.
Buchholz Line: 7.0 IP, 5 hits, 1 run, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K's.
Result - No Decision
Next Up: At Baltimore
My other phenom, Jon Lester is currently pitching game 2, more to follow.
