Another Impressive Outing For Buchholz

Pawtucket managed only one hit in ten innings today (10:30 AM start) and lost to Toledo 1-0, but Clay Buchholz turned in yet another impressive performance.

Buchholz pitched eight innings, allowing four hits, no walks, and no runs. He struck out 11. He threw 93 pitches (71 strikes/22 balls). In his six PawSox starts this year, he has a 1.03 ERA -- and has now pitched 21.1 consecutive scoreless innings.

Scrolling through SoSH's game thread, HH threw only seven balls through the first four innings, racking up eight strikeouts with a fastball that topped out at 96. Also, from SoxScout:
Toledo radio went over and asked PawSox radio if it was a screwball because Buch's changeup has been so crazy.... which is weird, he usually throw a straight change.
