- 20 April 2012 - The Red Sox mark exactly 100 years to the day that the team played its first game at Fenway Park against the same opponent, the Yankees (then known as the Highlanders). Unfortunately for the home team, the visitors best them 6-2 as Clay Buchholz yields five solo home runs.
- 10 August 2012 - Clay Buchholz allows just two hits and three baserunners in a 3-2 complete game victory over the Indians in Cleveland. Cody Ross drives home the winning run for the Red Sox with a two-run home run in the sixth.
