Stop trying to get rid of Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz has been awful in 2014 and frustrating through much of his career. But some Red Sox fans are still too quick to want him gone. Red Sox fans are not best pleased with Clay Buchholz, and it's not hard to understand why. Those who have watched all 21 of his starts this season have been treated to something like four good games, six decent ones, and nearly a dozen outright disasters. Clay Buchholz is not the reason this season was lost, but he's emblematic of the underperformance of so many players that is behind the Red Sox' 56-70 record. Still, the frustration has perhaps gone...

Another Buchholz Meltdown Leads To 8-3 Loss

Another Buchholz Meltdown Leads To 8-3 Loss

(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)Leading 3-1 going into the fifth inning, Clay Buchholz took that offensive gift and flushed down the proverbial toilet—giving up five runs to the Angels in that frame and an ultimate 8-3 loss. The first six Halo batters reach on Buchhholz, whose post-game explanation is like something out of the movie Groundhog Day: ''Just missed location with a couple of pitches and they were able to put a big inning together." Perhaps a GPS is order for Mr. Buchholz: location—60 feet, six inches. Boston had taken a 3-0 lead, one coming from a solo blast by David Ortiz (his 30th...

Buchholz victimized by Halos' 5-run 5th

BOSTON -- Given how well Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz had pitched the game's first four innings Wednesday night, the wall he hit in the fifth seemed nearly inexplicable. Holding a 3-1 lead entering the inning, Buchholz's outing quickly unraveled as he faced all nine Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hitters and surrendered five runs in his team's eventual 8-3 loss. Buchholz lasted six innings on the night, giving up six earned runs on seven hits, and collected his third straight loss.

If you like upbeat Clay Buchholz stories, then the first four innings and the sixth inning he pitched last night were pretty good.He allowed just one run on three hits, and he retired Mike Trout twice.If you want the truth about Buchholz, the five runs he allowed in the fifth inning were the story behind the Red Sox’ 8-3 loss to the Angels.

Closing Time: Clay Buchholz implodes in fifth inning as Red Sox drop third straight to Angels

In one inning, Clay Buchholz‘s night went from stellar to forgettable. The right-hander was handed a 3-0 lead by the Red Sox‘ offense and took a 3-1 advantage into the fifth inning, but imploded for five runs in the frame as the Sox fell 8-3 to the Angels Wednesday night. Buchholz looked nearly unhittable early on, […]

Can Buchholz salvage his season?

Clay Buchholz (5-7, 5.79) gets the start Wednesday against Garrett Richards and the Angels. The last time the two pitchers met was the 19-inning Red Sox loss on Aug. 9, when Buchholz allowed three runs while striking out eight in eight innings. He'll try to help the Red Sox end their current struggles and cool off the Angels (74-50), who have won two straight and six of seven following Tuesday's 4-3 victory. But Buchholz has been struggling all year, and is on his way to posting one of the worst starting pitcher seasons in Red Sox history.

Another encouraging outing from Buchholz

BOSTON -- Despite the end result being another extra-inning loss for his team, Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz could at least take a few encouraging signs away from the past two times he’s taken the mound. After striking out eight Angels in eight quality innings last Saturday, Buchholz upped his game against the Houston Astros on Friday night, striking out nine batters in seven two-run innings only to leave with another no-decision as the Red Sox eventually lost 5-3 after 10 innings.

Rapid Reaction: Astros 5, Red Sox 3

BOSTON -- The Houston Astros scored a pair of runs in the top of the 10th inning en route to a 5-3 win, snapping the Red Sox’s winning streak at four games Friday night at Fenway Park. Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz worked seven innings and allowed two runs on seven hits, with two walks and nine strikeouts in his no-decision. He tossed 110 pitches, 75 for strikes. Buchholz registered a season-high 12 strikeouts in a complete-game shutout against the Astros on July 13 at Minute Maid Park.

Buchholz Takes The Hill In Search Of Consistency

The Red Sox will send Clay Buchholz to the mound tonight in search of another victory over the Houston Astros (who Buchholz shut out on July 13th). The tall righty is coming off a terrific outing against the Angels—when he gave up three runs over eight innings. The question is: Can he sustain multiple good outings? Here Boston's line-up tonight: Brock Holt RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Yoenis Cespedes LF, Mike Napoli 1B, Xander Bogaerts SS, Will Middlebrooks 3B, Jackie Bradley Jr. CF, Christian Vazquez C.

The Red Sox will continue their four-game series against the Astros on Friday at Fenway Park, sending Clay Buchholz to the hill against Dallas Keuchel. Buchholz (5-7, 5.99 ERA) will be looking to find some consistency against Houston, as the right-hander has been hot and cold for most of the season. While Buchholz did post […]
