Clay Buchholz’s ‘Knee Buch-ler’ Curveball Powers Righty to Dominant Performance (Video)

When Clay Buchholz has his curveball working, he's one of the most electric pitchers there is in the big leagues. On Friday night, it was working.

Buchholz struck out seven Blue Jays in eight dominant innings of work, continuing his stretch of strong performances in Toronto. To cap it off, he even sat Jose Bautista down on strikes three times, which is never an easy thing to do.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding Clay our "Knee Buch-ler" award in honor of how badly he was fooling some Toronto hitters. Who's your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments.
