The rest of the Red Sox may have had their trouble with the Orioles this series, but Clay Buchholz didn't on Thursday night. Buchholz pitched his third career complete game shutout, all of which have come against the Orioles. While this wasn't a no-hitter, it was still pretty darn good. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding Buchholz our "Bye Bye Birdies" award as the Sox bid adieu to the O's until mid-August. Whatever happens between now and then, Clay Buchholz will likely be counting down the days. Who is your "Bye Bye Birdies" player of the game? Join NESN Nation:...
