Like the weather in the Back Bay on Saturday night, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz was ice cold. Or in the words of Charles Barkley, he was “turrible”.
Buchholz allowed six runs on 13 hits in 4.1 innings of work. The bullpen backed him up and along with the offense made it a game.
Unfortunately, Logan Schafer‘s RBI double in the 11th scored Khris Davis to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 7-6 win over the Red Sox in 11 innings.
Chris Capuano, Brandon Workman, Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa combined to scatter four hits and a walk while 13 in 5.2 innings to keep the Red Sox in the game.
Mike Napoli had two hits, including a three-run home run that cut the lead to 6-5. Xander Bogaerts hot streak to start 2014 continued with two more hits.
