Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz pitched seven innings of no-hit shut out baseball as Boston beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Sunday at Fenway Park.  Buchholz retired all Ray batters through the top of the eight inning when Rays 2nd baseman Kelly Johnson blooped a broken bat single into right field.  Desmond Jennings also bounced a high fly ball of the Green Monster but the Rays failed to plate any of their base runners.  Buchholz exited the game with eleven strike outs – a career single game high.

With the exception of a four-run 3rd inning, Rays starter Alex Cobb also had a solid outing – pitching 6 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits while striking out six.

The Red Sox improved to 7-4.  The Rays fell to 4-7.
