Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
• Summary: Red Sox newcomer Clay Buchholz, making his second career start, dominated the Orioles, tossing the third no-hitter in the majors this season in Boston's 10-0 win over the Orioles.
• Hero: Buchholz struck out nine and walked three using a mind-boggling collection of curves, changeups and fastballs.
• Unsung hero: Kevin Youkilis banged a three-run shot in the sixth that narrowly cleared the top of the Green Monster. It was his 15th homer of the year.
• Figure this: Buchholz became the third pitcher since 1900 to throw a no-hitter in his first or second major league start.
• No-no history: With Buchholz's performance, the Red Sox (17) only trail the Dodgers (20) on the all-time list for no-hitters by a team.
• Quotable: "When he made that play I knew something was meant to happen tonight. It was an incredible moment in my life." -- Buchholz, on Dustin Pedroia's slick grab and putout at second base in the seventh
