Buchholz earns sixth win

The Red Sox offense absolutely exploded tonight for ten runs, but starter Clay Buchholz didn't need most of them, going seven innings without giving up a run. Indeed, Buchholz was just as sharp tonight as Jon Lester was wobbly yesterday, allowing just five base runners and earning eight strikeouts.

Buchholz also became the first pitcher in the majors to six wins, after he became the first to five wins in his last outing. As I said last night, it's really always about the pitching, and Buchholz is on a roll - he's fun to watch, especially when he works as efficiently as he did tonight.
