Phillies' David Buchanan allows six runs in loss vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan was stuck with the loss in his season debut after surrendering six earned runs on seven hits and four walks in three innings while striking out one in his team's 6-2 loss to the Red Sox Thursday.

"His command seemed to be off right from the get-go," manager Ryne Sandberg said after the game, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "It looked like he was just slightly off his game. He was trying to work down in the zone but he missed and had a lot of long counts."

Buchanan put two people on base in each of the first two innings but was able to hold the Red Sox scoreless coming into the third, where the wheels came off. His third inning included a bases-loaded walk followed by a bases-clearing triple.

"I think when things started unraveling, instead of just saying, 'All right, this has to stop now' and just seeing what happens by the hitters hitting it, I think I tried to do too much," Buchanan said. "I think that kind of veers away from being aggressive and you start being passive. That's something I've got to wear on my shoulders. That's just not going to happen again. You get to that point, you've got to figure out how to stop that from happening early."

Buchanan will look to bounce back Tuesday against the Mets.

I think in the second inning I was better about getting ahead strike one.

"My biggest goal [this spring] is to show our front office and our coaches that I can throw the ball over the plate," Buchanan said. "That's one thing I had success with last year. I wasn't walking guys. I was throwing strikes, and that's what I'm known for. That's why I succeeded in the minor leagues; I was throwing strikes. So that's what I want to do this spring training, is continue to do that, pound the zone, force early contact and keep the ball on the ground."
