Buchholz sent down to minors

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after Wednesday's game that the team will send Clay Buchholz to Double-A Portland.

Buchholz is 0-4 with a 9.64 ERA in his last five appearances, and he hasn't made a quality start since April, so the team will send him down to get "a renewed start." Boston is off on both Thursday and Tuesday, so Tim Wakefield could be ready the next time Boston needs a fifth starter
