Buchholz pitched 6 innings, letting up 3 earned runs and 8 hits while striking out 5. The Sox are still up 7-4 after a huge 6-run first inning, so Clay will most likely pick up a win in his major-league debut. How exciting!
Sadly, Ellsbury did not get called up today. (Boo!) Instead, the Sox traded the disappointing Willy Mo Pena to the Nationals for a TBN minor-league player, thus leaving them room to add Buchholz permanently to the starting rotation rather than sending him back down immediately following today's game.
Hooray for Clay! Jacoby... I'll still be waiting for you.
