Clay Buchholz Finding His Rhythm After Shaking Off Some Early-Season Rust (Video)

Clay Buchholz wasn't exactly dominant on Saturday, but he pitched well enough to get the win, which is a step in the right direction following a lackluster season debut on April 8.

Buchholz allowed five earned runs on six hits in seven innings during Boston's 13-5 win on Saturday, but four of Tampa Bay's runs came in the fourth inning. The right-hander really settled down after the rough start, showing signs that he's coming into his own.

Buchholz worked hard this offseason after missing the final three months of last season with a back injury. If he's on top of his game, it could go a long way toward catapulting the Sox back up the AL East standings.
