Buchholz Brilliant in Sox 3-0 Win Over the Rays

Where has this guy been? A beam of light shined onto Clay Buchholz's disastrous season at Tropicana Field on Sunday afternoon in the form of a three-hit shutout completed in less than 100 pitches. That, folks, is what's known as a "Maddux." With the 3-0 win, the Sox earned themselves a chance to take the series from their AL East partner in 2014 futility, the...

Rays about to begin an uncommon September out of postseason chase

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Out on the field, a harmless pop fly from Brandon Guyer landed in Yoenis Cespedes' glove near the warning track to close a month that will give way to a September unlike any other here in recent memory. A small group of Boston Red Sox fans cheered its team's 3-0 victory Sunday behind the third-base line as the home crowd filed away. Right-hander Clay...

Buchholz Pitches Complete Game Shutout Against Rays

In Clay Buchholz’s last start he had a complete game shutout going and then it all fell apart in the 9th inning.  Today Buchholz would be in the same situation after 8 strong shutout innings, but then in the 9th he would be able to accomplish what he wasn’t able to 5 days ago.  Clay Buchholz is definitely finishing off the season strong and hopefully giving us all hope that...

Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Keeps Standing Out Amid Boston’s Auditions

Clay Buchholz brought the good stuff Sunday. Buchholz, whose season has been marred by inconsistency, tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the Boston Red Sox’s 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The right-hander needed just 98 pitches. Sunday’s victory was a nice bounce-back effort for Boston after Saturday’s disappointing loss, in which the Red Sox’s...

Clay Buchholz Finishes Job, Spins Very Efficient Gem In Red Sox’s Win

Effective and efficient. Clay Buchholz’s last two outings can be described as such, showing there’s still plenty of promise left in the 30-year-old’s right arm despite a turbulent 2014 season. The difference Sunday was that Buchholz finished the job, spinning a complete-game, three-hit shutout in a 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. “It’s late in the season...

Feat Of Clay: Buchholz Goes Distance In 3-0 Win

(AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)Clay Buchholz ended the first half of this season with an 11-0 complete game shutout of the Houston Astros. Today, he repeated that feat—going the distance on a three-hit, 3-0 shutout of Tampa. Buchholz was truly dominant—throwing just 98 pitches while striking out six and walking none. If we can count on this Buchholz in 2015, it significantly eases...

Red Sox-Rays Live: Clay Buchholz, Alex Cobb Clash At Tropicana Field

11:45 a.m.: Dustin Pedroia, as you probably expected, is not in the Red Sox’s starting lineup. Pedroia had his bell rung in the second inning of Saturday’s loss. He looked wobbly while walking off the field and, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell, experienced concussion-like symptoms. Brock Holt will play second base in Pedroia’s absence. Mookie Betts, who continues...

Red Sox need to add an anchor to the rotation

Chris O'Meara/Associated PressConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterThe 2014 Red Sox have a lot of problems. I mean, A LOT of problems. But of all of these problems, perhaps the most obvious is pitching, specifically the starting rotation. The only remaining starter from the start of the year is Clay Buchholz. Every other starter has been traded elsewhere. And...

Wait? What? The Red Sox Won A Game?

The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone...

Cespedes Delivers Blown Win As Sox Top Jays

NESN ScreenshotThe Red Sox are having such a bizarre year, they should invent stats just to apply to their situation. A case in point was last night's game in America Lite. Leading 3-0 with one out in the ninth, Clay Buchholz (named 'most disappointing' in our FN Poll) loaded the bases. On comes Koji Uehara for the easy save, right? Maybe last year. Uehara coughed up...

Dugout Digest – the future is now in Chicago

I’m really starting to wonder if the Chicago Cubs aren’t going to finish in last place in the NL Central this year. Despite splitting a four-game series with the Braves this past weekend, the Reds are just 12-24 since the All-Star Break, falling five games under .500 and pretty much out of the NL playoff race. And then, there’s the Cubs, who are a solid 18-18 since the Break...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Red Sox Overcome Late Collapse To Snap Losing Streak Against Blue Jays

Loss No. 9 would have been a tough one to swallow. The Boston Red Sox snapped their eight-game losing streak Monday with a 4-3, 10-inning win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. It wasn’t before a disastrous ninth-inning collapse in which the Blue Jays scored three runs to tie the game. Clay Buchholz, who allowed only two hits through the first 8 1/3 innings, loaded the...

The Daily Grind: +8.29 Units in 2 Weeks

Overall Record 22-16-1 +8.29 units What a weekend of highs and lows for Chicago baseball fans. The Cubs swept the first place Baltimore Orioles with impressive pitching and timely hitting in all three ball games.  The Orioles typically crush leftys on the road, but Wada shut them down.  He may be a buy-low pitcher for the rest of the year until the odds makers catch on.

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...
