Red_Sox_Clay_Buchholz_2013BALTIMORE — Boston Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz is scheduled to throw in Wednesday’s intrasquad game, according to a baseball source, further evidence that Jon Lester and John Lackey will pitch the first two games of the American League division series that begins Friday.

Buchholz last pitched on Friday, meaning Wednesday’s intrasquad game would come with his normal four days’ rest. Game 3 of the AL division series is scheduled for a week from Monday, which would also keep Buchholz right on schedule.
