Wow, what a game that was for young 23 year old Clay Buchholz. A no hitter in his 2nd Major League start. I feel so great for this kid and this team, who needed a pickup after a 4-game skid. He really deserves this and I hope he never forgets what he did last night. Clay was called up from AAA to play for us as we needed a few young players. He actually wasn’t suppose to pitch today. But becuase of Wake’s injury, he started Saturday and, boy, did it pay off. Many times did I think the no-hitter was gone, but then the glove of Dustin Pedroia came out of no where to save the great no-hit chance. Then a great bullet throw to get out a sliding Tejada. Also, Clay did himself a favor after the ball was struck to the left of him. He put his glove up and, Wow!, that ball is in there.
He did a great job to get the win and pick up this team. Great job, Clay. The Fenway Faithful of Red Sox Nation appluad you.
