Clay Buchholz gave up a pair of runs in the top of the first inning before settling down as the Red Sox fell 3-1 to the White Sox at Fenway Park.

Tim Anderson didn't waste any time, slamming the first pitch Buchholz threw over everything in left to give Chicago a 1-0 lead.

The lone Boston run came in the third on a sacrifice fly by Mookie Betts. Chris Sale scattered four hits over seven innings, striking out nine and walking just one in becoming the first MLB pitcher to record twelve wins in 2016..

Buchholz gave up three runs on four hits and a walk over five innings while striking out five. Two of the hits were home runs.
