Buchholz (2-5) gave up one run on four hits and one walk while striking out six through five innings to earn the win over the Rays on Sunday. Buchholz allowed a solo home run in the fourth inning but that would be all for the Rays in his five frames. The win was the 90th of his career for the 35-year-old. Buchholz finishes the season with a 6.56 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 59 innings.
Buchholz gave up six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four through four innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday. Buchholz was hit hard, allowing three home runs, including two in the fifth inning. The 35-year-old has a 1-5 record with a 7.00 ERA and 33 strikeouts through 11 starts this season. Buchholz is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Rays at Rogers Centre.
Buchholz allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out four across 3.2 innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He did not factor into the decision. Buchholz was tattooed for six extra-base hits in his short outing, including two home runs. Prior to this start, he had worked fairly effectively, allowing 11 earned runs across 21.2 innings spanning his last four starts. Still, his 6.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 50 innings this season indicate that he's had trouble putting together quality outings on a consistent basis. Buchholz is likely to draw a rematch against the Orioles in his next outing, currently projected to come on Monday.
Buchholz (1-5) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Red Sox, surrendering four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four across four innings. The 35-year-old veteran struggled against a volatile Red Sox lineup, registering a season-high-tying four strikeouts, which isn't exactly noteworthy. On the bright side, Buchholz didn't allow any home runs for the third time this season. The right-hander was making his ninth start as a Blue Jay, and his first career start against the Red Sox, who drafted him in the first round 14 years ago. He'll take a 5.63 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into a more favorable matchup at Baltimore on Wednesday.
Buchholz (1-4) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits with no walks and three strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Rays on Friday. He didn't pitch poorly, but Buchholz didn't receive any run support in the loss. The 35-year-old has been inconsistent with his control, but his ERA is trending in the right direction, as it sits at 3.57 in the last three outings. Overall, Buchholz is 1-4 with a 5.31 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 42.1 innings this year. He will start again Thursday at home against the Red Sox.
