Recap - Clay Pitched...And It Went Just How You Expected It Would

The Celtics were getting schooled by the Hawks on the other side of town, the NFL draft was a constant reminder of Goodell screwing the Patriots, and at Fenway you had to deal with the enigma that is Clay Buchholz (pictured).
Oh sure, Clay pitched into the seventh inning (wow...pin a medal on him) but it's become almost painful to watch him pitch.
Buchholz allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks in 6.1 innings as Atlanta beat the Red Sox 5-3. The loss snapped Boston's four-game winning streak.
He was in trouble right from the start, allowing a leadoff double to Nick Markakis. Two outs later a walk put runners on the corners and it was only a fine running catch by Mookie Betts that kept the Braves off the board.
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
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).
