Red Sox bounce back behind Buchholz and pen
BOSTON (AP) — Clay Buchholz combined with four relievers on a three-hitter and the Boston Red Sox bounced back from a pair of lopsided losses with a 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday in a game delayed by rain for over two hours.
The win snapped a 3-game losing streak for the Red Sox, who lost their previous two games by a combined score of 20-2.
Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 16 games and drove in two runs for the Red Sox, who collected 12 hits. Jed Lowrie and Kevin Youkilis each had RBI singles.
Minnesota, which had its 3-game winning streak halted, managed just three singles and had only one runner past first base.
