BOSTON, Massachusetts – Boston righthander Clay Buchholz took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and struck out 11 as the Red Sox blanked the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Sunday at Fenway Park.

Buchholz had issued just four walks before surrendering a leadoff single to Kelly Johnson in the top of the eighth. He gave up one more hit before completing the inning.

It was the third consecutive superb effort to start the season for Buchholz, who has surrendered just one run over 14 innings.
