Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz improved to 6-0 with his win over the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 1, by tossing seven shutout innings and allowing only two hits. He's the first pitcher to six wins this year, and he's gone seven-plus innings in each of his six starts and has struck out at least six, hitting double digits twice, in five of those starts. Buchholz hasn't allowed more than two runs in any start and has fanned 47 and walked only 16. His 44 innings are tops in baseball and his 1.01 ERA is leading the American League. Buchholz improved to 7-2 with a 1.49 ERA in his career at Rogers Centre, which is the best mark for pitchers who've thrown at least 55 innings at the field.

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz allowed two runs in 7 2/3 innings to win his fifth game of the season against the Houston Astros Thursday, April 25. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia said Buchholz didn't have his best stuff on the mound, either. Buchholz struck out 10 batters in the game, and six of them went down looking. Over 177 2/3 innings since May 27 of last year, he has an ERA of only 2.89. "He's done a very good job of pitching ahead in the count, most of all," said manager John Farrell, "and it's allowed him to pitch to a scouting report and exploit some holes of given hitters." Buchholz has given up just one home run this year.

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (hamstring) threw 40 pitches over two simulated innings against C/1B Mike Napoli (hips) Tuesday, Feb. 26, and felt good. "It felt more comfortable.
