Clay Buchholz’s Near No-Hitter Earns Him Second Straight Amica Pitcher of the Week Honors


April 20, 2013

Clay BuchholzTo say Clay Buchholz has started the 2013 season hot would be the understatement of the century.

Buchholz has blazed through the American League thus far, posting a 0.41 ERA with a 3-0 record and 23 strikeouts in 22 innings. His adjusted ERA+ is an astronomical 1,046, considering 100 is league average.

Sunday’s start was Buchholz’s best of the season so far. He carried a no-hitter through seven innings and allowed just two hits and four walks through eight. His 11 strikeouts were a career high.

That performance earned Buchholz his second straight Amica Pitcher of the Week honors. The righty pitches again Saturday afternoon against the Royals in the Red Sox’ first home game since the Boston Marathon bombings.
