Clay Buchholz Wins Amica Pitcher Of The Week


Clay BuchholzClay Buchholz took the mound for the third time this season on Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox, and the right-hander put in a great effort in the Boston Red Sox’s victory.

Following a loss and a no-decision, Buchholz earned Amica Pitcher of the Week honors with his outing against the White Sox on Wednesday. Buchholz pitched six innings in a Red Sox win against John Danks, allowing just three runs and striking out six.

Buchholz ended the first inning in a 1-1 tie on a throwing error, and the two teams played to a stalemate until the Red Sox starter gave up a two-run home run in his sixth and final frame.  He didn’t take the loss, though, after the Red Sox tied it up in the ninth inning and pulled ahead.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
