Clay Buchholz's Cutter Location

Yesterday afternoon following the 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park, the Yankees knocked around Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz’s cutter gave him some trouble as the Yankees managed four hits off it (including two home runs), while making just two outs.  He gave up two line drives on the cutter (both singles) and two fly balls (the two home runs).

Take a look at where Buchholz located his cutter last season:

Two mistakes, two home runs.
