Colby Rasmus's grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning of Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz snapped a 1-1 tie and helped send Boston to an 8-3 loss to the Astros in Houston.
David Ortiz had given the Red Sox a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the top of the first inning; the Astros tied the game on an RBI ground out by Jason Castro an inning later.

Buchholz (pictured) came unglued in the bottom of the fifth. He walked the leadoff hitter on a 3-2 pitch, then gave up a two-out single, hit a batter to load the bases and served up a 2-2 cookie to Rasmus which ended up in the right centerfield stands.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
