The Red Sox continued to look like a team that is ready for the playoffs and Clay Buchholz looked like a true number three starter. Buchholz gave up 5 hits and 1 run in 6 innings tonight and earned his 6th win.
The Red Sox offense was powered by J-Bay who went yard in the 4th before leaving the game with the flu. Casey Kotchman seemed to benefit from his recent time in the lineup by going 3-4 with a RBI in the game.
The bullpen was spectacular; Bard, Oki, and Papelbon combined for 3 hitless innings.
