Clay Buchholz Picks Up Where He Left Off Last Year

Buchholz Picks Up Where He Left Off Last Year
Not the best start for Clay Buchholz

The poop hit the propeller early for Clay Buchholz as he could only manage 1 and 1/3 innings before exiting from his first outing in the Grapefruit League. To his credit, Clay could have gotten out of the 1st unscathed if Bogaerts hadn’t booted one on a force attempt to second. Instead of two outs and a man at first, there were men on first and second and one down. With Kim at the plate, Flaherty and Reimold pull the double steal. Once again, bad D by the Sox cost Buchholz as Sanduval couldn’t make the play on a perfect throw from Hannigan from the plate. Kim then strikes out which should have been the third out for the second time.

Next batter, Christian Walker, doubles and Baltimore’s up 2-0. Hoes pops a single to left and 3-0. In the start of the 2nd Buchholz left with the bases loaded. Marban comes in and walks in a run. In all, Buchholz threw 37 pitches, gave up 3 hits and 3 walks and was charged with 4 runs. His command wasn’t.

Some Highlights

Boston managed 8 runs with shots from Bogaerts, Ramirez, Shaw, Travis and Dominguez. They staved off a last inning rally by Baltimore. With the score 8-5, Pat Light had the bases loaded and Rosa knocked in a pair leaving the Sox up by 1. McCarthy came in for the last out. Heath Hembree got the win.
