Red Sox Victorious Against Diamondbacks

BOSTON (AP) – David Ortiz homered, Dustin Pedroia scored three

runs and Clay Buchholz had another solid start to lead the Boston

Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over Arizona on Tuesday night and send the

Diamondbacks to their 11th straight road loss.

Buchholz (9-4) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk,

striking out eight in 5 2-3 innings for his sixth win in seven


Pedroia was hit by a pitch in the first inning, and Ortiz

followed with his first homer since June 2, his 13th of the season.

Pedroia hit an RBI double in the third and scored on an infield

single by Victor Martinez that resulted in a close play for first

base umpire Jim Joyce.

Replays showed he was right.
