He pitched innings, gave up seven hits and three runs, and recorded three strikeouts.While competing for the Portland Sea Dogs in 2007, Buchholz played in fifteen games, winning seven and losing two.
After the game, however, Buchholz was optioned to the Sox' Triple-A team in Pawtucket. "I hope I can come back in September and help out." Before Buchholz' first major league start, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said: "This kid can come up and pitch a no-hitter, and he's going to go back down...
Buchholz stated "I've never had a streak like this", and "I've never been one to say the pressure was too much for me, but I've felt like I've had a lot of weight on my shoulders just trying to be perfect and trying to do everything as well as I could to help this team win".
In his eighth start at Pawtucket in 2009, Buchholz took a perfect game into the ninth inning against the Louisville Bats, but it was denied after a leadoff single; ultimately, he pitched a one-hit shutout.
Buchholz was left off the postseason roster as the Red Sox eventually won the 2007 World Series in a four-game sweep over the Colorado Rockies.
He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket following the injury, and remained there for several weeks to work on his fastball.
