Dustin Pedroia, Will Middlebrooks Are Great ‘Hometown Helpers’ to Back Another Stellar Clay Buchholz Start (Video)

Finally, things fell into place for Clay Buchholz.

First, he pitched poorly but had all the run support he could ask for. Then, he pitched brilliantly but couldn’t buy a run to support his efforts. Finally, his offense matched his level of excellence and the Red Sox rolled to a 7-3 victory on Monday night.

Thanks to home runs by Dustin Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks, Buchholz picked up a win and, more importantly, so did the Sox. That’s why the infielders share our “Hometown Helpers” award to start a 10-game homestand.
