    BOSTON (AP) -- Before Clay Buchholz made his major league debut two weeks ago, the Boston Red Sox told him he was going back to the minors -- even if he pitched a no-hitter.

    Got to keep the kid now.

    The 23-year-old rookie pitched that no-hitter in just his second outing, using a dazzling three-pitch assortment of fastballs, curves and changeups to beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-0 Saturday night.

    "There's no going back to Triple-A," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. Buchholz was called up from Pawtucket on Saturday when teams were allowed to expand their 25-man rosters. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia helped preserve the no-hit bid with a sensational diving stop in the seventh inning.

    Okay, the Boston Red Sox are liars.
