Boston's Bucholz Beats Birds With No-No Bo-Sox win 10-0

As we head into September the underlying story of the American League East has been that Boston has just done enough to be better than New York. Even though the Yankees swept the Red Sox in their three game series in the Bronx, Boston still walked out of Yankee Stadium with a five game lead. Saturday was another example of Boston just going one rung on the ladder higher than New York. Saturday afternoon, Yankees rookie starter Ian Kennedy who had been just called up from Triple A defeated the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 9-6 in his first MLB start. Kennedy, had a memorable start allowing only five hits in seven innings giving up three runs but only one was earned. A great start especially in your MLB debut. However Boston outdid the Yankees again Saturday night. Red Sox rookie starter Clay Bucholz who had just been called up from Triple A threw a no hitter in his second MLB start defeating the Baltimore Orioles 10-0. Bucholz who had been with the parent team for a spot start on August 17, as he beat the Angels 8-4 is the first Red Sox rookie to ever throw a no hitter. He is only the third pitcher in MLB history to throw a no hitter in his first or second start. It was the first Boston no hitter since former Boston pitcher Derek Lowe in April of 2002. The win broke Boston's four game losing streak.
