Buchholz flirts with no hitter in victory

(Continued)

Local Connection

Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb lived the first two years of his life in North Reading.

As noted about the righty in The Eagle-Tribune last year, his mother Lindsay Miller-Cobb died at 49 of a stroke and his brother R.J. is a member of the U.S. Army and a Purple Heart recipient. He recovered after a piece of shrapnel had lodged in his hand when a Humvee he was in was blown up in Iraq in 2008.

Cobb yesterday went 6.2 innings, allowing four runs, three earned, on seven hits and one walk while striking out six.

Odds And Ends

David Ortiz (Achilles) was supposed to take four at-bats in a rehab assignment with Pawtucket yesterday, but he did not play because of illness. ... The Red Sox improved to 7-4. ... Daniel Nava reached base twice (walk, HBP) and has reached base in 18 consecutive starts dating back to last September. ... Dustin Pedroia has a season-high three hits. It was his fifth multi-hit game of the season.
