Jonny Gomes is Clutch Once Again in Sox Win!

Clay Buchholz had the dubious distinction of having “back to back” starts due to the All Star Break.  Buch pitched wonderfully before the break and hoped to continue that trend. Buchholz gave up a solo run in the 1st inning,  but the Sox got it right back for him in the bottom of the 1st by way of a Brock Holt RBI.  Buchholz kept trucking along until he got himself in a little...

Clay Buchholz Has Tall Task Of Striking Out Kansas City Royals (Video)

The Houston Astros strike out a lot. The Kansas City Royals don’t. Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz struck out 12 Astros on Sunday, but don’t expect him to do the same when he takes the mound against Kansas City on Friday. The Royals’ batters have struck out less than any team in the MLB with 553 strikeouts on the season. They also have the fifth-most hits of...

Good second-half club? Royals can start proving it at Boston

It's been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals made the playoffs -- a drought they're determined to end with some slight improvements in the second half. That goal seems far more realistic than Boston's chances of reaching the postseason and defending its title, but the Red Sox haven't written off their season just yet. James Shields takes the mound for the Royals...

BOSTON — Sample sizes don’t get much smaller than one game for a starting pitcher, but that’s what Red Sox manager John Farrell chose to analyze Thursday in regards to Clay Buchholz. “If we go off his most recent start, it was efficient, it was powerful,” Farrell said, adding that the performance was “very consistent” with how Buchholz pitched for much of last season...

All Star Break — 4 Days To Repurpose Your OCD

As soon as you're finished with this post, I want you to close your laptop, step outside and look at a bird in flight.

Clay Buchholz will not be making the trip to Minnesota this week for Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities. His brutal showing in April and May squashed any hopes of that months ago.
