Sept. 1: Buchholz blanks O's
The Red Sox needed a win badly when Clay Buchholz took the ball against the Baltimore Orioles for his second career start. But what a start it was: Buchholz struck out nine allowed just three walks on the way to a no-hitter, punctuating the performance with a nasty curveball to whiff Nick Markakis. The rookie took just 115 pitches to mow down the O's.
