Buchholz not setting sights on 20 wins

ARLINGTON -- Clay Buchholz (13-5) is still within range of a 20-win season with likely nine starts remaining in the Red Sox's final 43 games.

Buchholz, who has won eight of his last 12 starts heading into Tuesday's game vs. Angels at Fenway Park, said 20 wins isn't anywhere on his radar at this point.

"I'm definitely not going to set any goals right now at this point in the season. It would be awesome," Buchholz said. "But the wins, you get lucky sometimes and give up five or six runs and still win a game.

"I don't think the wins are a really big deal," Buchholz said. "It's a matter of keeping the team in the game while I am out there pitching."
