Old friend of the Boston Red Sox fanbase Clay Buchholz makes his first Major League start for any team other than the one that brought him up through the minor leagues.
Buchholz went 81-61 in ten seasons for Boston before the Sox shipped him off to Philadelphia this season to provide some veteran leadership for the young Phillies roster.
His first start in a Phillies uniform couldn’t get much easier. He’ll face the Cincinnati Reds, who have been absolutely baffled by Jared Eickhoff so far on Wednesday night.
But the Phillies haven’t fared any better against Cincinnati’s Brandon Finnegan either. Finnegan came over from Kansas City for Johnny Cueto after his great College World Series run followed by relief outings in the real world series just months later.
Cueto would help the Royals win their 2015 World Series Title.
Both offenses look anemic early on and Rookie Davis, whose parents have waited his whole life for precisely this season, starts game three of the series.
I don’t see why he won’t be effective against this Phillies lineup.
As I finish, Joey Votto has hit a solo home run in the seventh to break the 0-0 tie. That guy can hit. Everybody else, not so much.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: both offenses stink.
It isn’t so much of a prediction as a fact that I hope holds true once again. It doesn’t really matter who pitches, as long as they are of Major League caliber, there’s a good chance they succeed.
