If indeed John Farrell was hired by the Red Sox to get Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz straightened out, then consider the process to be a smashing success so far. One night removed from Lester's 4th win of the season, Buchholz dominated the Houston Astros 7-2 to become the 1st 5-game winner in the Major Leagues this season.

Buchholz (pictured) went 7.2 innings allowing 2 runs on 6 hits and a pair of walks while striking out 10.

Boston rapped out 11 hits including a 3-hit performance from David Ortiz who launched his first home run of the season in the bottom of the 3rd inning off Houston starter Philip Humber.

Daniel Bard pitched a scoreless 9th inning to close out the win for Buchholz.
