Boston Red Sox
CLEVELAND -- No one was more impressed than Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta. He made that clear after Boston's Clay Buchholz dominated Cleveland's lineup with a two-hit complete game in the Red Sox's 3-2 victory Friday night. "That's the best game I've seen pitched against us all year and it wasn't even a shutout," Acta said. Buchholz needed just 104 pitches to snap Boston's three-game losing streak and Cleveland's modest two-game winning streak. "All of his pitches were working on both sides of the plate," Boston manager Bobby Valentine said. Asdrubal Cabrera had the only two hits for the Indians, a first inning home run and a double in the fourth inning. The only other Cleveland base runner reached on an error. Buchholz faced the minimum three batters in six of the nine innings, retiring 27 of the 30 batters he faced as he improved his record to 10-3. In his last five starts Buchholz is 2-0 with a 1.15 ERA and op...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
For a couple of weeks we've been discussing how Clay Buchholz has been morphing into the ace of the Red Sox staff. Well, consider the transformation complete. In a must-win game (let's be honest, they're all must-win at this point), with the bullpen in desperate need of some rest, Clay told everybody, "Sit down. I got this."
Clay pitched a complete game...
The Red Sox had lost 3 games in a row and needed a great outing from Clay Buchholz more than ever. Buchholz did just that and once again looked like he might actually be the ace of the rotation. Buchholz not only pitched well, he pitched a complete two hit game in the win over the Tribe.
Buchholz gave up a run early when he gave up a solo HR to Asdrubal Cabrera in the 2nd...
Clay Buchholz was magnificent on Friday night staking his claim as the Red Sox number one starter
There have been very few things to be happy about as a Boston Red Sox fan this season. In fact, I can count the number of things on one hand:
The emergence of Will Middlebrooks as a legitimate MLB ready player has expedited a mini-youth movement for the Boston Red Sox. Granted, the...
Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. It's impossible for a pitcher to carry the load for any team, mainly because playing once every five days doesn't have quite the same impact as that of a positional player. But...
Clay Buchholz continued to be the saving grace of an underperforming starting pitching staff with a 2-hit, complete game performance in a 3-2 Red Sox win over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.The victory snapped a 3-game losing streak for Boston and pulled the team to within 2 games of .500.Buchholz (pictured) allowed a 1st inning home run to Asdrubal Cabrera and then allowed...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Here’s a novel idea: Rather than relying on turnarounds from erstwhile aces Josh Beckett [stats] and Jon Lester [stats], maybe the Red Sox [team stats] should just clone Clay Buchholz.
At this point, it may...
Clay Buchholz held up his end of the bargain on Friday night. Now it's the rest of the rotation's turn. After twirling a complete-game two-hit gem on Friday night and stopping Boston's losing streak at three games, Buchholz has now gone at least seven innings in each of his last five starts with a 1.15 ERA over that span. If even a bit of Buchholz's success rubs off...
Clay Buchholz pitched a two-hitter, Cody Ross hit a two-run homer, and the Boston Red Sox broke a three-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-2 on Friday night.
Buchholz (10-3) gave up one earned run in his second complete game of the season and fifth of his career. The right-hander improved to 8-2 in 17 starts following a loss the last two years.
Ross broke a 1...
After losing last night 5-3, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track in the second game of a four-game set with the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Indians television market, you can catch the game on SportsTime Ohio (STO). If you can't catch...
5:45 p.m.: It looks like Felix Doubront is going to be shut down, but not for good. Bobby Valentine told reporters in Cleveland on Friday that the 24-year-old starter will be skipped over in the rotation for his next scheduled start, in favor of Aaron Cook. Cook hasn't started since a dominant win over the Rangers on Monday and likely won't take the hill again until next...
8 a.m: Clay Buchholz did all he could and maybe some more in getting the Red Sox out of their three-game slide on Friday night. But as the day turns anew, the ball will be handed to Franklin Morales to try and keep Boston's playoff dreams alive. Morales, who seems to be a lock to be in the Sox rotation from this point forward, was impressive in his last outing on Sunday against...

Starting off today’s media availability, Indians manager Manny Acta shared that Roberto Hernandez (Fasuto Carmona) will be activated to start Wednesday’s game against the LA Angels. WTAM’s Nick Camino was the first person to put the...
They did it. They finally did it. Close to two long, excruciating weeks of blowouts, blown saves, and all around bad baseball had driven us all mad. But the 11-game losing streak mercifully came to an end yesterday as Justin Masterson and Shin-Soo Choo led the Tribe to a 6-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.
I tried something different on this day. Disgusted by what I saw a night...
