Notes: Buchholz has been excellent in four starts this spring: 13.1 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 11 K. The plan today would be for him to get around 90-100 pitches. Then he would back off a little in his last start of the spring before facing the Yankees on April 3 in New York. … Locke, a New Hampshire native, is facing the Red Sox for the third time this spring (also March 1 and March 6). … After today, the Red Sox will have six games left before starting the season. They are using their regulars today and again on Sunday against the Phillies in Clearwater.
