Like I said two days ago: Split. Split. Split.

Thanks to Clay Buchholz, that split was possible, as the Sox beat the Royals tonight, 10-3.

Buchholz was very good, striking out eight in 6.2 innings of work. He allowed no runs, no walks and five hits on the day. After another solid start, Buchh has lowered his ERA to 3.21 on the season. Nice.

Offensively, a lot of guys contributed. David Ortiz had a home run and three hits, while Jacoby Ellsbury had three himself. Dustin Pedroia had two RBIs and two hits, while Victor Martinez, Casey Kotchman and Alex Gonzalez all each had two hits as well.

Whew. What a way to finish this series. While the Sox should have had three games here, I'll take the split after losing the first two games. And how about Clay Buchholz? Guy has been a stud lately. Let's hope he carries that into the postseason (if the Sox make it, of course). The offense is still clicking, too.

Now it's time for a big series: three games in New York. While I guess we can't say this series will "make or break the Sox," a sweep would be fantastic. Let's give the Yankees a run for their money, shall we?
