Clay Does it Again

Clay Buchhoz had a no decision in game one of today's doubleheader against the Rays, but he is the reason the Red Sox won; he pitched 7 innings and gave up just 1 run on 5 hits. He took another step in becoming the #3 starter if the Red Sox make the post-season.  Oki pitched a perfect 8th and Papelbon came in to earn his 36th save in the 9th.

The offense was having a hard time getting hits off of Rays starter Matt Garza, but in the 6th Pedey just missed a homer with a wall-ball double and V-Mart drove him to put the Sox on the board.  Pedroia also had a 2-run homer off of Garza in the 8th.

Game 1 of the Rangers doubleheader is delayed until at least 5pm so the Red Sox now have a 3.5 game lead in the wild-card standings.

It doesn't even matter what Daisuke does on Tuesday. Buchholz is the number three starter in the playoffs. Heck he's more trustworthy than Beckett right now (not that he would start any game but Game 3). I love the rotation in general in a short series. The poor Angels just can't catch a break.

It took me a long way to come around but I am a believer in Buchholz now too. I would love it if Wake can get healthy because I trust him more than Dice-K.
