It appears nothing can derail Clay Buchholz‘s dominant start to the 2013 season.
After missing an appearance due to soreness in his right AC joint, the righty pitched five innings of scoreless baseball Sunday in a 3-0 win over the Yankees. Buchholz struck out four and allowed just two hits and one walk.
That performance lowered his season ERA to 1.62. Buchholz is 8-0 on the season with 77 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings. He’s walked just 28 batters this season and allowed 28 earned runs.
Buchholz’s next start is Saturday against the Angels in the second start of a day-night doubleheader.
