David Buchanan effective in no-decision


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) David Buchanan registered his eighth quality start in his last 10 tries on Sunday, but he failed to nail down his seventh win of the season. He pitched 6 1/3 innings, holding the Marlins to one run on five hits and a walk, but a blown save from Jonathan Papelbon led to a 5-4 defeat for the Phillies.

David Buchanan falls short of a quality start Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan could not turn in a quality start Sunday against the Reds.

Buchanan allowed four runs on six hits over four innings. He sported good control, walking none and registering six strikeouts. Buchanan was cruising until the fifth inning. He seemed to unravel somewhat during the inning, giving up a single and a double before Homer Bailey stepped to the plate.

Bailey helped his own cause, singling in both runs. To add insult to injury, Buchanan followed up that at-bat by giving up a home run to Billy Hamilton. It was Hamilton's second home run of the year. Buchanan rebounded in the sixth, turning in a perfect inning of work.

The loss dropped Buchanan to 1-3 on the year. His next start will come against the Cubs.
