Clay Buchholz was scratched from tomorrow’s start against the Mariners due to illness, according to Sam Dykstra of WEEI.com.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Buchholz was sent home last night due to “intestinal turmoil,” which aside from sounding really painful, would actually be a pretty awesome name for a metal band.

Tim Wakefield will get the call for the spot start tomorrow while Buchholz will be pushed back to start Monday’s series opener against the Angels.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the Mariners have caught a break here. Buchholz has a 5.33 ERA and 15/16 K/BB ratio over his first five starts this season.

    I think Clay is sick over the Sox pathetic play so far.

    I am too. No trips to Fenway for me this year.
