Buchholz Gets the Second Half Started Right

Clay Buchholz had a solid outing in his brief time with the big club; going 5 2/3minnings while giving up 1 earned run on 4 hits and 3 walks. Youk gave Buchholz an early lead with a 2-run homer in the first and Ortiz drove in 2 more in the 5th. The bullpen looked rested and pitched well. Bard struck out 3 of the 4 batters he faced and did not give up a hit. Oki gave up 1 hit in a scoreless inning and Paps was perfect in the 9th to pick up his 24th save of the season.

Red Sox Win 4-1 BOX SCORE

Oh man, was it good to be watching the game on NESN!

except for Jim Kaat...I thought the RemDawg might have come back after the break.

I was thoroughly pleased with Buch's performance on the mound. He battled those demons in 2008....dealt with runners on base, made some great snap decisions on the mound and didn't let a ball actually take his head off. He just seemed really confident, which I think is what Buch needed to do. His stuff has always been there, he just needed to believe in it.

I wish he had been able to finish the 6th inning...but given the situation, Tito completely made the right call...and then Bardo just smoked people away.

Great game.

I was watching the game with 2 of my brothers, my daughter, and another friend, so we didn't get to listen to the game so much, but we were watching while we were talking. Didn't know it was Jim Kaat until just now, but it was still so much better than TBS or Fox!

I will definitely be watching more games there whil in RI. You can see Jerry's hometown from my brother's house.

I'm also hoping to meet up with Jere from Dirty Water who lives not far from here.
