Game 114 recap: Bucking a trend.

Highest WPA: Clay Buchholz, .548
Lowest WPA: Adrian Gonzalez, -.194

Things went well for Red Sox pitching tonight as Clay Buchholz pitched a two-hit complete game, striking out six and walking nobody. The only two hits for Cleveland came off of the bat of Asdrubal Cabrera, who homered in the first and doubled in the fourth. So of course on the same night a pitch broke Will Middlebrooks’ wrist and will probably cost him the rest of the year. Hope you like Nick Punto, everybody!

Efforts to end the life of Craig Breslow continued tonight as he was warming up during the 9th inning, so even on a night that pretty much any manager should’ve been on cruise control, Bobby Valentine managed to be stupid. Hey, that’s some fun accidental wordplay. “Managed to be stupid.” He managed, for the sole purpose of being stupid. Neat!
