Better now for Buchholz to have a night like this than his first postseason start, right?
Four homers in three innings. How unfathomable is that? Buchholz had given up four homers over his last 58 2/3 innings entering tonight.
In other news, the Red Sox again have Hideki Okajima available in the bullpen. The lefty had an injured right side that had kept him out a few days. Mike Lowell will return to the mix on Thursday.
Nick Green, still trying to prove he’s healthy enough to be on the postseason roster, could be back in action by Friday.
