ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Clay Buchholz threw a three-hitter to stop his string of seven starts without a win, leading the Boston Red Sox over the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on Sunday.

Buchholz (6-8) walked none and struck out six. Only one runner reached second base during his second shutout this season and sixth of his career.

The right-hander’s previous win came over Kansas City on July 18, five days after tossing a three-hitter in an 11-0 win against Houston. He was 0-3 in that span.

Alex Cobb (9-7) had been 7-0 in his past 11 starts.
