• Buchholz goes to 9-0 as Red Sox earn split

    "That's what it's all about," said Buchholz. However, the Red Sox are paying Buchholz to pitch, not field, and he's doing that as well as anyone in baseball this season. Red Sox ace Clay Buchholz easily could joke about his fielding night with the start he's off to this season. Boston manager John Farrell didn't think the neck problem was anything serious. Buchholz didn't, either. Buchholz gave up two runs on six hits, striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings to match Arizona's Patrick Corbin as the majors' only unbeaten pitcher with at least nine wins, but he left in the seventh with what the team called "neck tightness." Fueled by more mastery from the righty, Boston salvaged a split of a day-night doubleheader on Saturday night with a 7-2 victory over the Angels in Game 2. In the fourth, Alberto Callaspo hit a high chop toward first, the pitcher got under it, but misplayed it before grabbing it and, while lying on the ground, reached to tag Callaspo before he reached the bag.
