Clay Buchholz finally seems to have turned things around.
After a shaky start to his season, the Boston Red Sox pitcher has gone 1-1 in his last three outings, sporting a 2.49 ERA over that span. Buchholz was a tough-luck loser in his last start when he received just two runs of support after allowing three runs (two earned) in 7 1/3 innings. He also took home a no-decision in the start prior to that, tossing eight innings of one-run ball with 11 strikeouts in a 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners.
Buchholz hopes to continue that success Tuesday night in Minnesota against the red-hot Twins. NESN’s Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy broke down the keys to Buchholz’s success on “Red Sox Gameday Live” before Tuesday’s game.
“What Buchholz is going to need tonight is he’s going to need his good curveball going and his changeup,” Remy said. “He needs to show them other pitches besides the fastball and he needs to have a pitch to put them away because they’re a very good fastball-hitting team.”
