Clay Buchholz improved to 9-4 on the season as he went 5 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits while striking out eight.
The first game of the three-games series with Arizona marked the return of Kevin Youkilis to the Red Sox lineup. Youkilis missed Sunday’s game after being hit by a pitch on the elbow in Saturday’s game against the Phillies.
“I haven’t played in a couple of days, so I felt a little awkward at first,” Youkilis told Heidi Watney on Red Sox Extra Innings. “We put together some great at-bats today; we could have probably had bigger innings, but we’ll take the win.”
