Red Sox: Buchholz Gets Win as Sox Beat Mariners 5-4

Written by 

Behind a David Ortiz homerun in the first, and a solid outing from Clay Buchholz, the Red Sox beat the Mariners 5-4 at Safeco Field to take the final game of the series.

 

There was plenty of drama to go around in tonight’s game between the Sox and Mariners. Clay Buchholz pitching, which always as fans on the edge of their seats, lots of hits and a stressful save for Koji Uehara in the ninth

After the Sox went up quick in the first, the Mariners struck back with a solo-homer from Kyle Seager and a two run shot from Mike Zunino two batters later in the second.

In most cases, this that would be chalked up as a loss this season. Instead, the Sox bats finally responded. In the third inning, David Ortiz hit an RBI single that scored Brock Holt to give the Sox a 4-3 lead after Daniel Nava  scored Jackie Bradley Jr.

After the Sox added another run, in the eighth inning Brad Miller made it a one-run game with a solo-homerun off Buchholz. Miller was the last batter Buchholz last batter of the game.

Koji had a more stressful than usual save, getting out of a first and second base jam to finish off the Mariners for his sixteenth save of the season and secure the win for Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox

CLAY BUCHHOLZ

Buchholz was solid tonight to get the win in his first start since May 25 coming off the disabled list. He only threw 75 pitches but considering he pitched into the seventh inning, this can still be chalked up as a quality start. Watching his entire start, it was noticeable that his curveball simply wasn’t there when he made the attempt. However, his cutter was a great pitch for him tonight as it helped him get his two strikeouts. Despite the three homeruns he gave up throughout the game, tonight is a good sign for Buchholz and sox fans going forward.

The Red Sox finally won another game and their bats were a big part of the win. The team pumped out eleven hits and five runs. This offensive production is something this team has been lacking.

Key Offensive Stats:

Daniel Nava: 3 for 4 RBI

David Ortiz: 2 for 4 3 RBI (2-run HR)

 

The Red Sox look to continue this offense against the Yankees Friday night where Brandon Workman will face Vidal Nuno.
