Clay Buchholz led the Red Sox to a victory with a gem of a start (8.0 IP, 1 ER, 5 K, 5 H, 0 HR). It was pretty much a pitcher’s duel. The Sox had RISP trouble in the 2nd inning, with 2nd and 3rd after a passed ball, with Sandy Leon striking out. In the 3rd, JBJ walked. Betts singled him to second. Then Brock Holt walked to load the bases. Then Xander Bogaerts hit a 2-run double. 2 RISP. Three pop outs. Inning over. They took a 2-0 lead, but blew two more runs. Come on. You only needed a sac fly. You should score at least one more if not two. in the 5th, Betts tripled for the first hit since the 2nd. Then Brock Holt scored him in with a single. 3-0 Sox. No more hits until the 6th. Devon Travis reached on an infield single. He advanced to second on a ground out. Then Donaldson doubled Travis in. For the rest of the game, only one hit. And Koji got the save with a 1-2-3. The Red Sox easily had a 3-1 lead over the Blue Jays. Look for tonight’s post and a game recap.
