Clay Buchholz picked up his fifth victory of the season on Friday, allowing four runs on 10 hits over six innings against the Royals.

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...

Red Sox 11, Astros 0: Clay Buchholz goes the distance, Red Sox dominate

The Red Sox put up eleven runs, but it was Clay Buchholz who stole the show with a complete game shutout. The Red Sox finished off the first half of the season on just about the most positive note possible, the lineup dismantling Houston's bullpen and Clay Buchholz going the distance in an 11-0 rout. This was certainly an odd game. Bo Porter made sure of that in the first. Houston pitcher Brad Peacock got off to a rough start, allowing an upper-decker solo shot to Brock Holt on the sixth pitch of the game, then giving up a single to Dustin Pedroia, a walk to David Ortiz, and hitting Daniel...

Is Clay Buchholz on the rise again?

It's been a four-year long roller coaster ride for Clay Buchholz. After hitting rock bottom in May, is he back on the rise? 13 months ago, Clay Buchholz looked like the best pitcher in baseball. He had cut through the American League with ease in the first half of 2013, and after throwing 6.2 innings of two-run baseball against the Angels on June 8th--a performance not up to his usual standards--held a 1.71 ERA. He was damn near untouchable. We all know the story from there. Buchholz landed on the disabled list with a seemingly innocuous neck strain that just would not go away. He would not...
