Clay Buchholz is having a borderline Cy Young season right now. The Red Sox righty is 15-6 with a 2.31 ERA in 24 starts. On the road, Buchholz is 8-2 with a 2.13 ERA. The righty has given up just four runs and 15 hits in his last 18.3 innings pitched. Buchholz did take a loss in Oakland back in July, but that was his first start against them after coming off the DL. Oakland hitters are just 8 for 33 (.242) against Buchholz in his career.

Trevor Cahill gets the start for the Athletics. He’s 15-6 with a 2.72 ERA in 25 starts this season. The righty faced the Red Sox twice last season and got roughed-up in both. Overall, in 10.3 innings pitched, he gave up 10 runs and 14 hits against Boston. David Ortiz (2-6), JD Drew (2-6), and Bill Hall (1-3) hit Cahill well in limited at-bats. Boston has scored 33 runs in their last four games, and they’ve won two straight road games where they are now 36-32. Boston is hitting .270 as a team in their last seven games, and with Buchholz pitching tremendously on the road, we’ll recommend playing the Red Sox in this game tonight.
