Mom, you're going to need to make up another bed in the basement because we have company.
After beating the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2 last night, the Boston Red Sox are now tied with the Blue Jays in 4th place in the AL East with both teams sitting at 27-25. They are just three games out of first, two games out of second and 1.5 games out of third.
With the offense pounding out 15 hits last night, you would have thought the offense was the story of the game. It was only half of it.
The other half was the outstanding effort by Clay Buchholz on the Rogers Centre mound.
While he did give up two solo home runs on changeups up in the zone, his stuff was nasty. His fastball consistently sat at 94-95 MPH and his changeup, other than those two home runs was outstanding.
To me, he got stronger as the game went on. He had trouble establishing his curveball early on but he found it later on. He used that curve to make two of the Blue Jays best hitters, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion...
