Clay Buchholz

  1. Has John Farrell learned his lesson now?

    Oct 17, 2013, 12:17 AM EDT

    John Farrell

    Red Sox manager John Farrell allowed Clay Buchholz to give up five runs to the Tigers in Sunday’s ALCS Game 2, only to be bailed out by one swing from David Ortiz‘s bat. On Wednesday, there was no such rescue after Jake Peavy was allowed to surrender seven runs in three-plus innings in what turned…

    Oct 13, 2013, 10:20 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Through the first 14 innings, the ALCS had been a pitcher-dominated affair. Anibal Sanchez and the Tiger bullpen held the Red Sox hitless through eight and two-thirds innings in Game 1 and Scherzer has held the Sox hitless through five in Game 2. To their credit, the Sox pitching has been nearly as good —…

    The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox. Victor Martinez hit a one-out double to left-center off of Sox starter Clay Buchholz. He advanced to third on Jhonny Peralta‘s line drive single to left, then came home when Alex Avila ripped a single up the middle.…

    The Red Sox were held hitless through 8 1/3 innings in Saturday night’s 1-0 ALCS Game 1 loss to the Tigers and will be looking for much more offense in Game 2 on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But that’s going to be easier said than done because the likely American League Cy Young Award…

    Boston’s offense netted just one hit in Saturday night’s ALCS Game 1 loss to the Detroit Tigers, so some changes are going to be made to the starting lineup heading into Sunday evening’s Game 2. According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, Mike Carp is expected to start over Mike Napoli at first base and Jonny…

  7. Daniel Nava breaks up Tigers’ no-hit bid, but Tigers win to take 1-0 ALCS lead

    Oct 13, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT

    Daniel Nava

    Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit took the hill at Fenway Park in the ninth inning tonight asked not only to successfully wrap up Game 1 of the ALCS by the narrowest of margins (1-0), but to wrap up what could have been baseball’s first post-season combined no-hitter. Anibal Sanchez, Al Alburquerque, Jose Veras, and Drew Smyly…

  8. Red Sox set ALCS rotation, led by Jon Lester in Game 1

    Oct 11, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Red Sox manager John Farrell laid out the team’s rotation plans for the ALCS. Jon Lester will start Game 1 tomorrow, followed by Clay Buchholz in Game 2, John Lackey in Game 3, and Jake Peavy in Game 4. In the ALDS win over the Rays the Red Sox used Lackey in Game 2 and…

  9. Austin Jackson must turn it around against Red Sox

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers escaped the ALDS against the A’s despite scoring more than three runs just once in five games. They’re going to need to do better than that against the Red Sox, and it will have to start at the top with leadoff man Austin Jackson. Looking lost at the plate, Jackson went 0-for-5 with…

  10. Over-managing playoff managers and bunts that “work”

    jimmy dugan

    If I ever owned a baseball team, I’d want to hire Jimmy Dugan from “A League of their Own” as my manager. This isn’t only because he dislikes the bunt, though that helps — you probably remember the scene where he finally notices what’s happening on the field and calls off Geena Davis’ bunt sign…

  11. Jose Lobaton delivers walkoff homer against Red Sox to keep Rays’ season alive

    The Rays will live to see another day. After Fernando Rodney blew a save in the top of the ninth inning, Jose Lobaton delivered a walkoff solo homer off Koji Uehara in the bottom of the ninth to give the Rays a thrilling 5-4 victory over the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS.…

  12. Video: Evan Longoria goes deep as Rays tie Red Sox in Game 3 of ALDS

    Evan Longoria Getty

    We have a whole new ballgame at Tropicana Field. Evan Longoria launched a three-run homer off Clay Buchholz in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie Game 3 at 3-3. He has a habit with this kind of thing in elimination games, now doesn’t he? You can watch video of the homer below. The…

    Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury continues to be a pain in the neck for the Rays. After Clay Buchholz worked out of a bases-loaded jam to keep the Rays off the board in the bottom of the fourth inning, Ellsbury led off the top of the fifth with a liner which deflected off James…

  14. Red Sox grab early lead over Rays in Game 3 of ALDS

    Jacoby Ellsbury AP

    The Red Sox could finish off a three-game sweep of the Rays tonight. They are off to a quick start on that end. After Jacoby Ellsbury singled to lead off Game 3, Alex Cobb hit Shane Victorino with a pitch. Dustin Pedroia followed with a ground ball to third base, but Victorino’s take-out slide at…

    This recent trend of family member national anthems gets the HardballTalk seal of approval. Andrew McCutchen‘s mom Petrina belted it out before the Pirates’ NL Wild Card Game win over the Reds on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh and now Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports that Julianna Zobrist — the wife of Rays star…

  17. Behind David Ortiz’s two-homer night, Red Sox take a 2-0 lead in the ALDS

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Red Sox will head down to Tampa Bay happy campers. After a thorough 12-2 dismantling of the Rays in Game 1, the Sox scored seven runs against 2012 AL Cy Young award winner David Price in seven-plus innings, just enough run support for John Lackey. The scoring started early, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off…

  18. Are there any holes to be punched in these Red Sox?

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    With the ability to start David Price twice and Alex Cobb once in the next four games, the Rays aren’t sunk after dropping Game 1 to Boston on Friday. The Red Sox, though, seemed pretty unbeatable today with the offense in sync despite four days off and Jon Lester limiting the damage besides a couple…

    The Red Sox won’t know their ALDS opponent until the conclusion of Wednesday night’s AL Wild Card Game, but their first-round rotation is already set. Red Sox manager John Farrell told Sean McAdam of CSNNewEngland.com on Wednesday afternoon that Jon Lester will start in Game 1, John Lackey will start in Game 2, Clay Buchholz…

    Clay Buchholz had his longest outing since coming off the disabled list while David Ortiz joined some special company as the Red Sox hammered the Orioles 12-3 last night at Camden Yards. In doing so, John Farrell’s club is one step closer to clinching the best record in the American League. While Buchholz didn’t have…

  21. Red Sox’s turnaround more about incumbents than newcomers

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v San Francisco Giants

    We’ve heard it a million times now: the Red Sox changed the clubhouse culture for the better when they brought in Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster over the winter. And that’s certainly true. I imagine this has been the best Red Sox team to cover in several years, and they do,…

  22. The Red Sox beards are magical or something

    Sep 16, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Jonny Gomes, Jackie Bradley Jr., Shane Victorino

    I’ve noticed the Red Sox’ beards for a while now. Haven’t said much about them because I was waiting to see if there was some higher purpose to them beyond team bonding and image-crafting. Maybe some charitable thing? Maybe solidarity with a friend or fan suffering from some illness? I don’t know. Stuff happens and…

  23. Clay Buchholz is one win away from unbeaten history

    Sep 16, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    I’m not much for pitcher win-loss records, but this is still kind of neat. Yesterday Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz tossed six innings of one-run ball against the Yankees, improving to 11-0 with a 1.51 ERA on the season. Buchholz has been limited to just 14 starts because of injuries, but he’s one win away…

    Red Sox' Bogaerts singles in the seventh inning of their American League MLB baseball game against the Yankees at Fenway Park in Boston

    Mariano Rivera was honored Sunday prior to his last ever regular-season appearance at Fenway Park. The Red Sox made sure that was the only time he’d see the mound all weekend. The Red Sox shook off a first-inning Yankees run with three of their own and routed the Bombers 9-2 for a three-game sweep in…

    CC Sabathia AP

    Coming off a loss last night, the Yankees needed the vintage CC Sabathia or a reasonable facsimile to show up this afternoon against the Red Sox. It didn’t happen. Sabathia was touched up for five runs on nine hits and four walks over six innings as part of a 5-1 loss. After beginning the afternoon…
