Buchholz Tries To Reverse Fortune vs. Yanks
After a day off the Boston Red Sox will resume their series with the Yankees by sending Clay Buchholz to the mound.The Yanks have not been kind to the Sox righty over his nine starts. Buchholz has a 2-5 record with an ERA of 7.19. New York has a batting average of .328 against Clay during that time.
Buchholz is coming off a spring that saw him pitch as well as any pitcher in the majors allowing just 2 runs in six games while striking out 22 and walking just 6. He’ll be opposed by Hiroki Kuroda of the Yankees.
The pitching match-up for the series finale has Ryan Dempster facing Andy Pettitte.
