Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Clay Buchholz has had a sensational start to his seventh major league season, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

The Red Sox right-hander fired seven innings of two-hit ball and Boston beat up the Toronto Blue Jays, 10-1, in the second installment of a three-game set at Rogers Centre.

Buchholz (6-0), the first in the majors to six wins, didn't allow a run for the third time this season and racked up eight strikeouts.

He's allowed just five runs in 44 2/3 innings of work this season and is the first Red Sox starter to win his first six starts since Josh Beckett won his first seven in 2007.

Mike Napoli helped back Buchholz with three of Boston's 15 hits, finishing with two homers, a double, four RBI and three runs scored. Stephen Drew went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and Daniel Nava and Mike Carp each added a solo shot for the Red Sox, winners in six of their last seven.

Mark Buehrle (1-2) was shelled for five runs on seven hits and three walks over 6 2/3 frames. Toronto had just four hits in dropping its fifth game in six tries. Brett Lawrie's RBI triple represented the team's only score.
