I’m not much for pitcher win-loss records, but this is still kind of neat.
Yesterday Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz tossed six innings of one-run ball against the Yankees, improving to 11-0 with a 1.51 ERA on the season. Buchholz has been limited to just 14 starts because of injuries, but he’s one win away from tying the all-time record for most victories in a season without a loss.

Buchholz is the only full-time starter on that list and his 1.51 ERA is by far the best of the bunch.
I’m of the opinion that knowing a pitcher has a 1.51 ERA, 90/34 K/BB ratio in 95 innings, and just two homers allowed in 14 starts is more than enough to tell you they’ve pitched incredibly well, but “11-0″ still looks pretty cool and 12-0 would make some history.
