DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Clay Buchholz pitched two-hit ball for four scoreless innings and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Friday.

Buchholz allowed singles by Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera in the first and struck out three. The right-hander, who was 12-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 16 starts last season before injuries slowed him, has not allowed a run since his first start against the Tampa Bay Rays on March 4.

Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison, a candidate for the fifth spot in the rotation, allowed four hits and one earned run with seven strikeouts in 4 2-3 innings.

Corey Brown and Sean Coyle hit RBI doubles for the Red Sox.

Jonathan Diaz scored Toronto’s run on a double to left field by Kevin Pillar in the eighth.
