Congratulations Clay Buchholz!
Clay Buchholz just pitched a no-no for the Beantown Nine and it was brilliant. It is a shining spot in an otherwise mournful week. After the sweep in the Bronx, it is particularly gratifying to maintain a 5-game lead over the Yankees, especially with a pitching gem like the one hurled by Mr. Buchholz. Only the 17th no-hitter in Red Sox history and the first since Derek Lowe in 2002, the Orioles were absolutely flummoxed by Clay Buchholz.
Thank you Clay…and welcome to the big leagues.
