G83: Red Sox 6, Astros 1

Astros  - 000 000 001 - 1  6  2
Red Sox - 110 011 02x - 6 11  0
Clay Buchholz (9-6-1-0-8, 110) pitched his first complete game of the season. In his last 10 starts, dating back to May 15, Buchholz has a 1.99 ERA. Those look like Ace numbers to me.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 with two doubles and 3 RBI. ... Xander Bogaerts was 2-for-4 and drove in two runs. ... Sandy Leon went 3-for-4 and scored twice. ... Shane Victorino was 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

"The Nationals as a team have issued no more than two walks in each of their last 16 games, tying the longest such streak for any team in the live ball era (since 1920). Two other teams had 16-game streaks allowing two or fewer walks in that 95-year span - the Reds in May 1933 and Giants in September 1968."

Jon Shestakofsky:
"Buchholz is first Red Sox with a complete game on Independence Day since Paul Quantrill in 1993, first at Fenway since Mike Torrez in 1979."
