Clay Buchholz fans seven in win over Royals
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz posted a quality start and struck out seven in a win over the Royals Thursday night in Kansas City, improving to 8-8 on the year. He allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and three walks over 6 1/3 innings of work.

Over his last three starts covering 21 2/3 innings, Buchholz has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 5.19 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 25 starts (152 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Thursday at Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Analysis | 1410367236
Clay Buchholz looking good for his upcoming matchups
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Though Clay Buchholz has been on a nice run for the Red Sox lately, owners in CBSSports.com leagues haven't shown an interest in picking him up. Ever since a late July/early August slump, Buchholz's ownership rate has hovered in the 44-to-48 percent range.

Over his last six starts, Buchholz has a 3.22 ERA, and as I detailed in a recent blog post, he has been showing a similar skill set to the one he displayed during a highly effective (though injury-plagued) 2013 season. At minimum, it's time for owners in deeper mixed leagues to pick up and start Buchholz, especially since his next two starts come on the road. Away from Fenway Park, Buchholz has limited hitters to a .238/.305/.353 slash line, and bear in mind, that includes the first two months of the season, when he struggled mightily.

Neither the Royals nor the Pirates have been easy matchups in recent weeks, but Buchholz has been good enough at avoiding hard contact and walks to be able to survive those upcoming outings. He's worth a shot in most daily leagues, and in weekly leagues, the only reason not to start him (especially in standard and shallow mixed formats) is if you need to make room for a good two-start pitcher.

Clay Buchholz wins one Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz turned in a strong start Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Buchholz allowed two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Buchholz gave up one run in the first inning. After getting two quick outs, Buchholz allowed a single, walk and run-scoring double against the next three hitters. He was able to induce a strikeout to get out of the inning. He settled in at that point, tossing five scoreless innings. He got himself in trouble again in the seventh inning. Buchholz put one batter on after a hit by pitch and was lifted from the game. The next batter hit a two-run homer. One of those runs was charged to Buchholz.

With the win, Buchholz improved to 7-8. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.

Clay Buchholz tosses CG shutout to end winless streak
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz ended his winless streak at seven starts Sunday by throwing a three-hit complete game shutout at Tampa Bay. The right-hander didn't issue a walk and struck out six in a 3-0 win.

Only one runner reached second base during his second shutout this season and sixth of his career. Buchholz gave up a single leading off the bottom of the first inning to Kevin Kiermaier, a double to Matt Joyce with two outs in the fourth and a single to Jose Molina leading off the sixth. He retired the final 12 batters he faced.

Buchholz (6-8) won for the first time since July 18 against the Royals. His other shutout this season came July 13 against the Astros. He also allowed three hits against Houston, but he had 12 strikeouts that day.

The right-hander is expected to make his next start Friday vs. Toronto. He is 2-5 with a 7.20 ERA in 11 home starts and 1-3 with a 6.10 ERA in five starts against Toronto this season.

Clay Buchholz loses it in the ninth
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz couldn’t make it through the ninth inning Monday.

Buchholz allowed three runs on four hits over 8 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Buchholz was fantastic over the first eight innings of the start. Through eight innings, Buchholz allowed just two hits and one walk. He was brought out to start the ninth, and couldn’t make it through the inning. With one out, Buchholz allowed two singles and a walk to load the bases. He was replaced by Koji Uehara at this point. Buchholz threw 103 pitches during the start. With the bases loaded, one run came across on a ground out. With two outs, Uehara allowed a two-run double to Edwin Encarnacion to tie the game. All three runs were charged to Buchholz.

Buchholz picked up the no-decision for his efforts. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.
