Clay Buchholz Stays Positive After Red Sox Win, Despite Poor Personal Performance

Clay Buchholz couldn’t find the plate Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays, and when he did, those baseballs frequently were hit a long way away at Rogers Centre.

Ultimately, the Boston Red Sox pitcher was tagged for six runs on four hits and four walks in three innings of work. He walked a run in with the bases loaded, gave up a grand slam and another home run. It was his shortest start of the season.

But Boston continually climbed out of holes and kept fighting, eventually earning an 11-8 win over their division rivals and leaving town with a two-game lead for first place in the division. That’s enough for Buchholz, who pointed to the strong character of his teammates in the come-from-behind win.

Check out his comments, as aired on NESN’s “Red Sox Final” in the video above.
