The Red Sox soared past the Blue Jays 10-1 to earn their 19th victory of their young season. Clay Buchholz is once again the headline of yet another game. By the way, we all must bow to his strong efforts to grow a beard. Peach fuzz and all, Buch looks like he's got a career in porno ahead of him with that thing growing. Back to the game; Buchholz was flat out eletric. His two-seamer and his curveball had serious life, buckling many batters' knees. I still can't get over how far this kid has progressed. Right now, he has the stuff, command, and composure of a top MLB ace. He's been that good. Buchholz finished the night throwing seven innings and allowing two hits, three walks, eight punch-outs, and no earned runs. It was a true display of power for the offense tonight, as Stephen Drew, Daniel Nava, Mike Carp, and Mike Napoli (twice) all went yard. It's encouraging to see Drew take several of his hits for power this season opposite field, as his first homer of the season was crushed into the right field stands.  Also, Papi narrowly missed an opposite shot himself as it just bounced near the top of the left field wall. Additionally, Will Middlebrooks looks to be trending upward since he was lowered in the order. He's currently 8 of 23 (.347) in his last six games. If he can keep this going, look out during his next homestand at Fenway. All in all, the Sox put this one out of reach quick. Ryan Dempster counters Josh Joshson in the series finale tomorrow at 7:07pm. Quick note: you gotta love these Toronto fans. What a piece of work. I know I wrote about this last month, but I can't get over how short a leash they give this team. What was that, about 18,000? Patheitic fanbase. BOXSCORE
