Of a Yankees/Red Sox series beginning on July 10:
“Should be a good series,” said right-hander Clay Buchholz, who will pitch the series opener tonight at Fenway Park. “If we get a chance to sweep this series it’s going to put us in a really good spot going in the second half.” (...)
The biggest blemish against Buchholz this season came April 12 in the Bronx when he got rocked for 10 runs (nine earned) in 31⁄3 innings. Since, he has been worthy of top-of-the-rotation status, posting the eighth-best ERA (2.54) among AL pitchers with at least 10 starts since May.
Buchholz lost on July 10.
