Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle improves to 4-0 in last seven starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Mark Buehrle got plenty of run support during a 11-2 rout of the Red Sox on Wednesday. He allowed one run on four hits and no walks, while striking out seven in seven innings.

Buehrle (9-4) gave up a two-out single to David Ortiz in the first inning before retiring the next seven batters. He allowed a leadoff single to Xander Bogaerts in the fourth inning and a one-out triple to Alejandro De Aza in the fifth inning. 

The veteran lefty tossed six scoreless innings before Pablo Sandoval had an RBI groundout in the seventh inning after Hanley Ramirez led off the frame with a triple.

Buehrle is 4-0 in his last seven starts. He hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in six straight starts. He has at least five strikeouts in four straight outings.

Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle stays hot Saturday in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Those who deemed Blue Jays veteran Mark Buehrle a has-been after his ERA soared to 6.75 in early May have been eating a lot of crow lately.

That remained on the menu Saturday when Buehrle recorded his eighth consecutive quality start to lower his ERA under 4.00 (3.90) for the first time since April 15. He held the Orioles to just two runs on six hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. That was good enough only for a no-decision in an eventual defeat.

A fielder's choice and sacrifice fly plated the runs off Buehrle, who has allowed just 19 runs in his last 64 1/3 innings pitched. He will try to remain on a roll next Friday against Texas.

Blue Jays P Mark Buehrle throws complete-game shutout


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle allowed only six hits in a full nine innings of work during Wednesday night's 8-0 win over the Nationals. 

This is the second consecutive game that Buehrle has gone nine innings and the first this season that he's kept the opposing team from scoring any runs. Buehrle struck out two batters and walked one. 

"That was a masterpiece," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, via MLB.com. "It seems like whenever we need something, he steps up. Two complete games on this road trip. You look at the career he has, and he's one of those guys that does that kind of thing."

Buehrle improved to 7-4 this season with the win and now has an ERA of 4.35 this season. 

His next start is projected for June 9 against the Marlins. 


Mark Buehrle earns complete game win for Blue Jays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2015) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle pitched a complete game for the win on Friday, against Minnesota. 

Buehrle allowed four runs on six hits and moved to 6-4 on the season. He didn't walk a batter and struck out three. He allowed just one hit after the first inning.

"I didn’t change anything. I think it was a lot of luck after the first inning," Buehrle said. "There were a lot of balls hit in the air towards the warning track. That’s a sign of not being on my game. … I wouldn’t have thought I’d go a complete game with the stuff I had today."

His next start is Wednesday against Washington. 


Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle can't quite keep up in Saturday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Blue Jays veteran southpaw Mark Buehrle performed well Saturday against visiting Seattle. Just not well enough.

Buehrle took his fourth loss despite giving up only three runs on five hits in 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out four.

He allowed two big hits early that cost him the game - a Kyle Seager home run in the second and two-run double by Willie Bloomquist in the third. He then faced two batters over the minimum the rest of the way.

"Early in the season, pitching wasn't doing good and hitting was here. Now the pitching's there, and the hitting's not doing so well," said Buehrle to MLB.com. "We've run into some tough pitching right now. It's a long season, we need to try and get the pitching and hitting going at the same time, as well as the bullpen. Try to get all three aspects of the game going at once, hopefully turn us around."

Buehrle has been solid over his last four starts, surrendering 10 earned runs in his last 27 1/3 innings to lower his ERA from 6.75 to 5.13. He is set to start again Friday in Minnesota.

"He's a master, really, of keeping them off-balance," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "And when he's on, you go up there, he's not going to overpower you, but you have no idea what he's going to throw you. He can throw anything at you at any time."

He was reported earlier this week to be battling aches and pains. The only run he allowed came on a groundout in the first inning, but his offense was able to take the lead by the end of the second and didn't relinquish it.

I’m not striking guys out. I’m trying to put the ball in play. They’re going to find holes. They’re going to hit the ball hard at times. When guys are on base, I’ve got to minimize the damage as much as I can.”

Third inning, I didn't miss too many bats, they were putting the ball in play pretty hard and guys diving all over and making some plays. Overall, it was good, I got up to the 90 pitch count area. I would have liked it to be more like six or seven innings, but that's the way it goes."

Blue Jays P Mark Buehrle guns for 200 innings again


(3/7/2015) After an impressive first start of the spring on Saturday, Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle  was his usual self.  The veteran lefty is, once again, gunning for 200 innings of pitching in 2015.  It would mark his 15th consecutive season of doing so.

"If you get to 200 innings, you're going to get your strikeouts, you're going to get your wins," Buehrle explained. "If you get to 200 innings, everything else is going to fall into place."

If Buehrle does in fact manage 200 innings for the 15th consecutive year, he would join Hall of Famers Gaylord Perry and Don SUtton in doing so.
