Red Sox's Clay Buchholz strikes out 10 in no-decision vs. Rays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz didn't factor into the decision Thursday, allowing just one earned run on two hits and three walks in six innings while striking out 10 in his team's 2-1 loss to the Rays.
Buchholz served up an RBI single in the second inning but was otherwise able to shut down the Rays Thursday. However, a quality start by the opposing pitcher prevented him from picking up what would have been his first win since Opening Day.
Buchholz owns a 4.84 ERA and 29:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings but has put together three good outings in his four starts this season. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Tuesday.
Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz allows two runs but gets stuck with loss
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz (1-2) gave up 11 hits in six innings but only yielded two runs Saturday, suffering the loss to the Orioles.|
Buchholz notched seven strikeouts in the loss.
"I went through a rough outing my last time out," Buchholz said. "I was more thinking pitch to pitch, get a ground ball, not give in -- I wasn't going to give in to anybody, regardless of bases being loaded or not. They're going to have to hit a good pitch."
Manager John Farrell said he thought Buchholz pitched with "more conviction" Saturday, and the pitcher did not disagree.
"After the last outing, the last thing I wanted ‘em to do is let them hit the ball around," he said. "I definitely didn't feel like I gave up 11 hits. I won a couple of battles, but balls just ended up falling in. But it didn't affect me like it did in New York."
Buchholz looks to even up his record Thursday in Tampa Bay.
Red Sox's Clay Buchholz apologizes for poor effort vs. Yankees
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz apologized to coaches and teammates for being unable to keep his composure during a loss Sunday against the Yankees, according to the Boston Herald. Buchholz was tagged for nine runs in 3 1/3 innings.
“There’s no excuse for it,” Buchholz said. “I was pissed off and things were happening really quick, but no, there’s no excuse for that. I told the staff it wouldn’t happen again.”
Buchholz seemed to be particularly apologetic for not backing up the catcher on a bases-loaded double in the first inning and not backing up third base in the fourth inning. Buchholz said he spoke with manager John Farrell about ignorning his defensive responsibilities.
“I’m a lot better player fundamentally than that,” Buchholz said. “I just let the game get to me the way it was going. That’s my responsibility to do the little things in the game regardless of how the game’s going, and I didn’t do it. It won’t happen again.”
Buchholz will be back on the mound Saturday against the Orioles. He was encouraged by his between-starts bullpen session Wednesday, and he feels he has figured out why he struggled against the Yankees.
“I got into a predictable mix where I was throwing fastball first pitch and then going straight to offspeed,” Buchholz said. “If I could go back and do it all over again, I probably would have done a few things differently.”
Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz roughed up in start Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz was roughed up throughout his outing in Sunday's 14-4 blowout loss to the Yankees Sunday, where he was tagged for 10 runs, nine earned.
Buchholz barely got through the first inning, allowing seven runs on four hits, including back-to-back home runs to Chase Headley and Stephen Drew, needing 30 pitches to finish the inning.
"If you don't get frustrated out there after some of the things that were going on tonight then I don't think you're human," Buchholz said to the Boston Herald. "But I don't think I let it affect me with trying to do too much with pitches. I felt good with pretty much everything except for the two mistakes and they were both home runs. If I could've kept it to that we might've won the ballgame. Yeah, it's frustrating when balls find holes or they execute the hit-and-run like they did. Got to hang with them. Like I said, we'll get them tomorrow."
He got through the second and third innings unscathed but ran back into trouble in the fourth, allowing four consecutive singles and a sacrifice fly before he was taken out with just one out.
Buchholz ERA ballooned to 7.84 and will look to get back on track Saturday against the Orioles.
Red Sox P Clay Buchholz strikes out 9 in win over Phillies
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/6/15) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz went seven scoreless innings on Monday during his team's 8-0 win over the Phillies.
Buchholz threw 94 pitches and only gave up three hits. He struck out nine batters and walked one. Buchholz faced 27 batters in the game. Buchholz was able to work his way out of having runners on first and second in both the fourth and seventh innings.
'This is how I planned it in my head,'' Buchholz said, via the Associated Press. ''Everybody's opinion about the rotation outside the clubhouse is different than what's in here.''
Buchholz's next start is expected for this Saturday against the Yankees.
|2014 summary: Health issues marred yet another Red Sox season for Clay Buchholz, as he missed nearly a month with a hyperextended left knee. Buchholz was having a miserable season prior to going on the disabled list, as he went 2-4 with a 7.02 ERA through 10 starts. Though his post-DL performance (6-7, 4.64 ERA) didn't do much for his popularity in Fantasy, Buchholz did emerge from his recovery a much better pitcher. In particular, he threw with much sharper control, walking 30 batters over 120 1/3 innings, and walking more than two batters in only four times in his final 18 starts.|
Playing time status: Buchholz had surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee just after the 2014 season, but he is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
2015 outlook: Buchholz's wild year-to-year inconsistency and persistent health issues make it hard to count on him to perform at a high level, but bear in mind he has finished three of the last five seasons with a sub-3.50 ERA. Even in his best years, Buchholz hasn't been a great strikeout or control pitcher, so his upside isn't high enough to justify the risk of using anything more than a late-round pick to secure him.
