Clay Buchholz: Sox hurt by loss of some key players from last season

A year ago on July 28, the Red Sox were 20 games above .500. They maintained a slim half-game lead in the AL East. Fast forward to this season, and they occupy the cellar of the division and were just handed one of their worst defeats of the season, falling 14-1 to the Blue Jays. […]

A scary Plan B-uchholz

A scary Plan B-uchholz

Clay Buchholz not only pitched lousy last night, but his timing was impeccably bad as well.At a time, when everyone still is trying to get used to the rapidly increasing reality that Jon Lester is going to be traded by Thursday at 4 p.m. or signed by a deep-pocketed team like the Yankees or Dodgers before Thanksgiving, Buchholz went out and delivered a brutal start: seven runs, four walks in five-plus innings.

Red Sox starting pitchers and the nine-inning curse

For Red Sox starters, going the distance might be an achievement best avoided. Looking for a crackpot theory that confuses correlation and causation and is couched in superstition? I've got just the thing! Red Sox pitchers should stop going nine innings because it only leads to disaster. Remember last week when Clay Buchholz fired off nine innings of shutout ball, striking out 12 Astros? Remember how impressive he looked, and how convinced we all were that he was back in earnest? Now look at his last two starts. Sixteen hits and nine runs (eight earned) in twelve innings, with as many walks...

Buchholz 'Walks' His Way Into A 6-4 Loss To Jays

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/)Well, The Carmine Hose pretty much have to sweep the rest of this road trip (one more afternoon tilt in America Lite and three more at the MostPulpDome in Tampa) to have any realistic chance at the post-season. Clay Buchholz put one nail in the 2014 coffin with six lifeless innings in which he surrendered 3-0 and 4-3 leads. He coughed up five earned runs and walked four—all coming back to haunt him. Not exactly ace material in the 6-4 loss. With Brock 'Babe' Holt inexplicably riding the pine, Boston's offense was led by David Ortiz (24th HR), Daniel Nava and...

Clay Buchholz gives it away

Clay Buchholz gives it away

TORONTO — Xander Bogaerts dropped to one knee, angry with himself for rushing a throw that didn’t need to be quite so rushed and committing an error that allowed the go-ahead run to score.But that wasn’t why the Red Sox lost last night, and Clay Buchholz knew it.“I’ll take the blame for this one,” Buchholz said. “For sure.”

Buchholz escapes injury, but can't dodge loss

TORONTO—There was a dazed aspect to Clay Buchholz’s pitching Wednesday night, and that was even before he took a comebacker from Munenori Kawasaki off the side of his head. The Red Sox barely had time to savor the 3-0 lead David Ortiz gave them with his fourth home run in three nights before Buchholz gave it all back in the bottom of the first, foreshadowing what would become a 6-4 Sox defeat. “I’ll take the blame for this one, for sure,’’ Buchholz said.

Buchholz keeps damage to a minimum

BOSTON -- As alarming as 10 hits allowed in six innings can be for a pitcher, for Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz such a stat line represented a continued positive development. Sure, the hits weren’t ideal. But such is the territory with another walk-free outing for the right-hander, his fourth in five starts since returning from the disabled list June 25, a span in which he’s pitched 35 2/3 innings and allowed just one walk. Friday night’s 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals marked Buchholz’s fifth win of the season and third since his return.

ClayMationNation; Buchholz Fans 12 In 11-0 Win

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)This is what we've been waiting for from Clay Buchholz. The pre-injury snappy breaking stuff, the nasty cutter, the poise on the mound—the results. The tall righty fanned 11 Astros, giving up just three hits on the way to a complete-game shutout of Houston, 11-0. There was no doubt about the dominance of Buchholz from start to finish—he tossed seven pitches in the first and seven in the ninth. The offense was keyed by (who else?) Brock 'Babe' Holt who collected five hits—including a lead-off home run to start the scoring (he's now hitting .327). Christian Vazquez...
