HR, HR, HR, HR & a Buchholz Gem

The Red Sox spanked Shaun Marcum and the Toronto Blue Jays to the tune of a 10-1 thumping behind 4 HR's, 2 from uber-utilty man Bill Hall, and a gem of a game from Clay Buchholz.

Buchholz limited the Jays to 5 hits and 1 run in 8 innings. The lone run was unearned. Buchholz improved his record to 13-5, lowering his ERA to 2.49 and WHIP to 1.22, all on 109 pitches.

The offense that was supposed to be a little weak this year pelted the Jays pitching staff with 14 hits. Shaun Marcum had been one of the Jays more reliable starters, but not today. Victor Martinez went 2/5 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored. With the Sox holding a 9 run advantage, Saltalamacchia was able to make his catching debut but did not make a plate appearance. Eight Red Sox batters got at least 1 hit with Bill Hall leading the way with 2 HR's, 2 runs scored and 4, count 'em, 4 RBI's.

Detroit beat Tampa Bay leaving the Rays with a decreasing WC lead of only 3.5 games. Texas is leading the Yankees 6-5 in the top of the 9th inning.

Sox 10 Blue Jays 1 BOX SCORE
