Buchholz solid through six but suffers loss

NEW YORK -- The black-and-white verdict on Clay Buchholz is he was tagged with his first loss of the season Thursday, and the Red Sox have now lost both of his starts in 2014. A.J. Pierzynski, who caught Buchholz in Thursday night's 4-1 loss to the New York Yankees, advises you consider the bigger picture. "He looked a lot more confident out there," Pierzynski said. "If Buch pitches like that, he's going to win a lot of games, so he'll be fine. I know his [velocity] was down in his first start and all that, but his stuff was back to where I remember Clay Buchholz being the last bunch of...

Big night for Clay Buchholz

Big night for Clay Buchholz

For a guy who nearly went undefeated last season, Clay Buchholz sure has a lot to prove.To hear Buchholz’ critics tell it, the right-hander is a lost cause, a shell of his former self, a mental wreck who refuses to cut loose because he can only pitch on 70-degree days with no wind and 12 percent relative humidity.Never mind that Buchholz’ horrible season-opening start was literally his first subpar performance since the final weekend of 2012. He’s done!Let’s take a breath.

Coffee and Clippings: Clay Buchholz needs to be better

John Tomase (@jtomase) of the Boston Herald writes that Clay Buchholz needs to get better for the Red Sox… We bring all this up because Buchholz made his 2014 season debut last night, and it did not go well. The Milwaukee Brewers teed off on Buchholz for 13 hits and six runs in 41⁄3 innings […]

Buchholz Delivers Lump Of Clay; Sox Lose, 7-6

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/)If you're the home team at Fenway Park and you score six runs, you're supposed to win. Yesterday—thanks to a horrible performance by starter Clay Buchholz—the Red Sox ended up scoring six and losing 7-6 in extra innings to the 19-hit Brewers (AKA The New Harvey Wallbangers). Buchholz—a complete 180 degrees from his 2013 early season—stunk up the house in 4.1 innings, giving up 13 hits and 6 earned runs. The bullpen was nearly perfect—failing in the 11th inning when Burke Badenhop yielded the winning run. So, Boston is now 2-3 through the first five—on...

Red Sox Beat: Clay Buchholz needs to be better

Red Sox Beat: Clay Buchholz needs to be better

Here’s one of the myths of 2013: The Red Sox won it all without Clay Buchholz.While it’s true that Buchholz missed half the season because of shoulder and neck issues before barely being a factor in the playoffs, it’s not like he never took the hill.

Buch allows 13 hits; Badenhop loses in 11th

BOSTON -- Clay Buchholz is capable of great things on the mound. A quick glance at his numbers last year suggest as much. His phenomenal 2010 campaign is further proof. There was the no-hitter in his second career start in 2007. However, Buchholz's career path reads like a volatile stock report with wild fluctuations in impact year to year and even within particular seasons (as in 2013, when he dominated for two months before sitting with a neck strain for three).

This loss should go to Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz allowed a career-high 13 hits and allowed six runs in 4⅓ innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The last stinker Buchholz had was October 1, 2012, when he allowed six hits and eight runs in 1⅔ innings against the Yankees.

Clay Buchholz allows career-high 13 hits as Milwaukee Brewers beat Boston Red Sox, 7-6, in 11 innings

It was a career-worst for Buchholz, and a tangible reminder that his electric April in 2013, the one that led to half of a career season for the ultra-talented right-hander, is going to be difficult to replicate.

Rapid Reaction: Brewers 7, Red Sox 6 (11)

BOSTON -- There were 13 runs, 26 hits, four errors, three double plays, two wild pitches, 31 strikeouts, 367 pitches thrown by 14 pitchers and one big addition to the loss column for the Red Sox, who are under .500 for the first time in the John Farrell era following a 7-6 setback to the Milwaukee Brewers that took 4 hours, 23 minutes in chilly conditions at Fenway Park on Saturday. The teams combined for 11 runs in the first three frames as Clay Buchholz was not sharp for the Red Sox and some shoddy Brewers defense helped Boston stay close.

Ice-cold Clay Buchholz (six, runs, 13 hits) struggles badly as Red Sox fall in 11 at frigid Fenway

Clay Buchholz was as ice-cold as the elements Saturday night. Back-to-back doubles from Khris Davis and Logan Schafer in the 11th inning off former Brewer Burke Badenhop broke a 6-6 tie and led Milwaukee to its second straight interleague win over the Red Sox, 7-6, Saturday night in a four-hour, 23-minute marathon at a frigid [...]
