Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz threw a no-hitter in his second career major league start back in 2007. In his 108th career major league start this afternoon against the Rays, he may throw another.
Buchholz has allowed no hits through seven innings versus Tampa Bay. He’s issued four walks and his pitch count is up to 99, but the 28-year-old has already thrown 113 pitches in a game this season so the Red Sox should allow him to go the distance. Buchholz has tallied a career-high 11 strikeouts.
We’ll provide regular updates as he goes for history.
UPDATE, 4:05 PM: Tampa Bay’s Kelly Johnson smacked a broken bat single to right field to open the top of the eighth inning. The no-hitter is gone for Buchholz. You can blame us if you’d like.
