Let's be honest here. Clay Buchholz? To snap a four-game losing streak? To save us from a sweep?
I'm not feeling it. Are you?
I mean, I know that Tommy Hunter isn't exactly killing it, and that this situation sort of fits perfectly with the way Clay's season has gone so far, with terrible pitching being saved by tons of run support. But you can't live on that forever, and the Sox winning?
Well, who ever heard of such a thing?
