Buchholz struggled through a 30-pitch first inning and escaped a bases loaded/1 out jam. With one out in the second, he gave up a single and hit a batter. But he righted the ship, retiring the 14 of the next 16 batters and finished with a 6.2-3-0-3-4, 106 line. Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon closed it out.
Boston took a quick 1-0 lead in a very odd half inning that saw two infield singles, an error, a stolen base, an intentional walk, and two wild pitches. In the third, David Ortiz drove in Marco Scutaro with a fly ball to right. ... Dustin Pedroia had two singles, a triple, a stolen base and a run scored.
