Buchholz anticipated to make next start

ARLINGTON, Texas — After a lengthy meeting with manager John Farrell following the Red Sox’ 6-2 loss to the Rangers, Dave Dombrowski offered the media assembled a dose of reality.

His team’s starting pitching just finished a three-game series in which it allowed 19 runs in 12 1/3 innings, with the Red Sox falling four games back in the American League East race. And, in the latest loss, Clay Buchholz struggled once again in the No. 5 spot, allowing five runs over 5 1/3 innings.

But Dombrowski offered the fly in the ointment when it came to making a deal to help fix the problem.

“The thing you have to remember is that you have two clubs to make a deal, and most clubs, as I’ve said all along and it hasn’t changed whatsoever, really are not prepared to move towards 2017 and be in a position where they’re willing to move,” he said. “There are probably five clubs that have been looking at...

Buchholz struggles once again in loss to Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas – Things continue to trend in the wrong direction for Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox.

The pitcher the Sox were not only relying on to fill the fifth spot in their rotation, but, in the short term, help relieve a taxed bullpen, came up short once again. Buchholz allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings, leading to a 6-2 loss for the Red Sox at the hands of the Rangers.

The outing marked the seventh time in 12 starts that Buchholz has allowed five or more runs, with his ERA as a starter now standing at 6.31.

The loss drops the Red Sox four games out of first place in the American League East for the first time since April 12.

It seemed miraculous that Buchholz lasted as long as he did after suffering through a horrific first inning. The Sox starter kicked off his outing at Globe Life Park by allowing the first six Texas batters to reach via four singles and a pair of walks.

Buchholz escaped the first giving up...

“It was really just about getting ahead in the count,” O’Sullivan told MiLB.com. “I tried to use all my pitches and luckily I was able to throw everything for strikes and fortunately they hit some balls hard right at our defense...
