BOSTON -- Rookie Clay Buchholz pitched the 17th no-hitter in the history of the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night in just his second Major League start, becoming only the third pitcher in history to register a no-hitter that early in his career.
The 23-year-old right-hander struck out nine, walked three and hit one batter as the Red Sox defeated the Orioles, 10-0, before a sellout crowd at Fenway Park.
Before Saturday's historic game, Red Sox manager Terry Francona spoke of a letdown in Buchholz's Triple-A performance after his Major League debut Aug. 17. For two weeks, the 6-foot-3 prospect from Nederland, Texas, shuttled across upstate New York, losing his next two starts as a member of the Pawtucket Red Sox.
But, Francona added, "I think we still love this kid to death. And we're excited for a chance to run him out there and see how he does."
