FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Clay Buchholz pitched three hitless innings and struck out four as a Boston Red Sox split squad beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 Saturday.
Buchholz allowed just a walk in his first outing against big league hitters. He pitched a perfect inning against Northeastern earlier in the week.
Twins starter Phil Hughes pitched one scoreless inning, working around three hits and a walk.
Hanley Ramirez had two hits for Boston and David Ortiz hit an RBI single off losing pitcher Mike Pelfrey. Mookie Betts also had two hits and scored twice.
