Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Does His Job; Pablo Sandoval Likely Back Friday

BOSTON — Thursday night’s loss represented more of the same for the Red Sox: a weak offensive effort that overshadowed a very strong outing by a Boston starting pitcher. Clay Buchholz was that pitcher Thursday, and after an inauspicious start, he kept the Texas Rangers in check for the bulk of his 7 1/3 innings of work. The right-hander allowed two runs in the first inning...

Red Sox Wrap: Boston Bats Go Silent Yet Again As Rangers Take Series Finale

BOSTON — Even with the unofficial start of summer right around the corner, the Red Sox’s bats remained ice-cold Thursday night. Boston managed just one run on six hits in the finale of their three-game series with the Texas Rangers, spoiling a strong start by Clay Buchholz in a 3-1 loss at Fenway Park. It was the seventh time in nine games the Red Sox had failed to score...

Inconsistency: Early Theme With Red Sox

It has been an up and down season for the 2015 Boston Red Sox. Coming into the season much had been made about the lack of moves made by general manager Ben Cherington and his team to bolster the starting rotation These claims were not unfounded. After trading four of their five starters in 2014 and losing Jon Lester to free agency, the team appeared to concentrate on offensive...

New pitching coach Carl Willis paying off so far

AP PhotoConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterA couple of weeks ago, the Red Sox parted ways with pitching coach Juan Nieves and brought in new pitching coach Carl Willis. The difference? 13-17 with an ERA of 5.03 under Nieves and 2nd-to-last in starter ERA and bullpen ERA. Now, with Willis, the pitching staff is 4-2 with a 3.13 ERA. Perhaps most noticeable has been...

Carl Willis’ Hiring Already Looking Like Smart Move By Boston Red Sox

This embed is invalid" /> New Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis really doesn’t want to take any credit for Boston’s recent turnaround on the mound. To which I say, “What you talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?” While it would be foolish to give Willis all of the credit for Boston’s team ERA dropping from 5.04 at the time he was hired May 9 to its...

Clay Buchholz Wins Amica Pitcher Of The Week

Clay Buchholz’s performance Friday night wasn’t quite enough to earn him a win, but it clearly was the best showing of any Boston Red Sox pitcher this week. Buchholz tossed eight stellar innings in Boston’s 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners, allowing just one run on three hits. He struck out a season-high 11 without walking a single batter. For that, the right-hander takes home...

Mariners Walk Off in the 9th on Sox!

The Red Sox came into the game winning two in a row and having two quality starts from their pitchers.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound and hoped he could continue that trend.  Buchholz did pitch what could be considered a gem, but got only one run in support from the Sox offense.  The game was tied in the 9th and Nelson Cruz ended up making the Sox pay with a walk off...

Seattle Mariners 2, John Farrell 1

(AP Photo)If there were such things as "good losses", this could be one of them. Despite a crushing 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, Clay Buchholz turned in his best performance of 2015—eight innings, one earned run, eleven strikeouts and no walks. But, it was his manager John Farrell who handed this game to Seattle. With two outs and a man on second in the ninth inning...

And Starring Clay Buchholz as John Lackey or Jake Peavy

Remember those torturous games that Lackey and Peavy used to pitch for us, where they’d give their all and hold the opposing team to a few measly runs only to watch our offense rendered impotent? Last night, Clay Buchholz channeled those awesome but ultimately frustrating performances. For eight strong he held the Mariners to three hits and one run while striking out 11, but our...

Sox Offense Comes to Life in Win Over Blue Jays!

The Red Sox had a team meeting after the loss yesterday and whatever it was that they said, it seemed to have worked.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound and it might have been the best we have seen him since Opening Day.  I am still not sure he’s the ace, but he sure looked like a pitcher that can find a place in the rotation.  More importantly, the Sox offense was hitting early...
