The Daily Grind: 4-0 $weep yesterday (8/21/14)

We swept the card yesterday at the Daily Grind, going a perfect 4-0.  Let’s take a look at a quick recap. Edwin Jackson got shelled again. The over was a winner by the 4th inning.  I’m not sure how he gets another start in a Cubs uniform.  Baltimore got to Hector Noesi in the 4th inning and held on to beat the White Sox 4-3.  Our 2 play of the days were easy wins.  The Angels...

Buchholz Leads Sox to Yet Another Loss

The Red Sox got out to early 3 run lead and the Angels unfortunately lost their starting pitcher Garrett Richards to a freak knee injury, however the Sox were still unable to capitalize and lost another game to the Angels.  The wheels came off big time for Buchholz in the 5th inning and the Sox were never able to recover. The Sox scored a single run in each of the first 3 innings...

Another Buchholz Meltdown Leads To 8-3 Loss

(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)Leading 3-1 going into the fifth inning, Clay Buchholz took that offensive gift and flushed it down the proverbial toilet—giving up five runs to the Angels in that frame and an ultimate 8-3 loss. The first six Halo batters reached on Buchhholz, whose post-game explanation is like something out of the movie Groundhog Day: ''Just missed location with...

Clay Buchholz’s Implosion Versus Angels Adds To Head-Scratching Season

BOSTON — The Clay Buchholz narrative could turn you blue in the face. Buchholz’s season has been a repetition of inhales and exhales — inhales when he takes the mounds, exhales when he doesn’t implode — for the Red Sox, as it’s nearly possible to predict which version of the right-hander will show up on a given night. There’s no denying Buchholz can be filthy when all...

Astros Grab A Game at Fenway In Extra Innings

The Red Sox have owned the Astros at the friendly confines of Fenway, but that would come to a halt last night when the Astros finally won a game, even if it did take them 10 innings.  The Red Sox didn’t have much of a chance against the curse that is Ben Affleck’s birthday.  The Sox have not won a game on Affleck’s birthday since Good Will Hunting came out back in the day...

Astros Win For First Time Ever At Fenway, 5-3

(Photo by Darren McCollester/Getty Images)This was another one that the Red Sox should have won—and probably would have if this were 2013. But, Boston blew 2-0 and 3-2 leads on the way to a 5-3 loss to Houston. Clay Buchholz pitched well enough to lose—giving up a game-tying HR to Robbie Grossman that effectively ended his shot at a win. Yoenis Cespdepes smoked a line shot HR...

Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Starting To Feel Like 2013 Version Again

BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox’s four-game winning streak ended in unusual fashion. The Red Sox fell to the Houston Astros 5-3 in 10 innings Friday at Fenway Park. Boston carried a 3-2 lead into the eighth inning, but Houston tied the game on a strange play. The Astros later grabbed a victory when Jake Marisnick blooped a two-run double down the right field line. The teams will...

Red Sox’s Winning Streak Snapped After Strange Play Goes Astros’ Way

BOSTON — It’s been that kind of season. The Red Sox entered Friday’s game against the Houston Astros riding a four-game winning streak — their longest since a five-game run sandwiching the All-Star break. The good vibes came to a screeching halt in rather strange fashion, however, as the Astros benefited from a wacky play in the eighth inning en route to a 5-3, 10-inning...

Clay Buchholz Pitches Well, Earns No-Decision In Red Sox’s Loss To Astros (Video)

5:20 p.m.: The Red Sox have won four straight for the first time since a five-game winning streak — separated by the All-Star break — from July 13-21. Boston’s last three victories have been of the come-from-behind variety. Clay Buchholz, who starts Friday, was lights out the last time he faced the Astros. He tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout while striking out 12 in...

Buchholz Takes Hill In Search Of Consistency

The Red Sox will send Clay Buchholz to the mound tonight in search of another victory over the Houston Astros (Buchholz shut out the 'Stros on July 13th). The tall righty is coming off a terrific outing against the Angels—when he gave up three runs over eight innings. The question is: Can he sustain multiple good outings?

In A 19 Inning Marathon, Sox Walk Away With A Loss

The Red Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound and hoped he would have a rebound start from his horrible outing last time verses the Yankees.  Clay struggled in the first, but then really settled down along the stretch.  The Red Sox offense went from almost being no hit, to having the lead and then heading into a marathon extra innings outing.  The Sox would come up short when Albert...

Red Sox Notes: Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket After Great Debut

The best way to describe Saturday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels? Long. It took 19 innings and six-plus hours to determine a winner. Finally, Albert Pujols lifted the Angels to a 5-4 victory with a walk-off home run off Brandon Workman. The game ended after 3:30 a.m. ET. The Red Sox don’t have much time to stew on the devastating defeat, as roughly 12...

Clay Buchholz Looking To Build Confidence Amid ‘Baffling’ 2014 Season

Clay Buchholz’s 2014 season has been bad. Really bad. That being said, the Red Sox still view Buchholz as an integral part of their future, especially now that he’s the rotation’s elder statesman in light of Boston trading Jon Lester and John Lackey before last week’s Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. The real quandary, however, is that Buchholz’s season...

Red Sox-Angels Live: Clay Buchholz Faces Tall Task In Attempt To Rebound

8:05 p.m.: Jackie Bradley Jr. will sit for the fourth time in five games. Bradley is mired in a major slump — 0-for-27 with 13 strikeouts since July 26 — and has been victimized by Boston’s crowded outfield. Even with Allen Craig sidelined with an ankle injury, the Red Sox continue to opt for a trio sans Bradley. Yoenis Cespedes (left field), Brock Holt (center field) and Daniel...

Sox Focus Needs To Shift From Bats To Arms

Last night's performance by Clay Buchholz brings into sharp relief the dilemma facing the Red Sox. After partially solving their need for right-handed power with the acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes, it's pretty clear that 2015 will be a disaster without adding veteran starting pitching. It's completely unrealistic to think we can rely on the likes of Joe Kelly, Rubby De...

Yankees Eke Out Win vs RedSox Before Tough Tigers Series Begins

The only win uglier than last night's 8-7 Yankee win over the Boston Red Sox, was last weeks 12-11 victory over the Texas Rangers. In both cases the pitching faltered and the offense was able to do just enough to get the win.It emphasized the point that they don't have to be pretty, they just have to be wins. Against a pitcher besides Clay Buchholz, the 8 runs they needed...
