Buchholz hit around park in loss

Clay Buchholz was bashed for a season-high 12 hits and seven runs in just 5 13 innings in the team's 7-3 loss to the Angels Wednesday.
The Red Sox have now lost six of their last eight games.
"Too many balls up in the zone. You can't throw pitches consistently up there and expect to get away with hit against a team like that.'' Clay Buchholz, explaining his rough night.

Buchholz doesn't have much to say about move to bullpen

Clay Buchholz' reaction to losing his spot in the Red Sox rotation and being moved to the bullpen was quick and to the point on Saturday.

According to reporters in Toronto, including Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal, Buchholz muttered only "I got [expletive] moved to the bullpen. You can write it down."

Manager John Farrell announced before the game Friday that the move would be made. Farrell told reporters Saturday that Buchholz, who last pitched Thursday night, volunteered to pitch in relief on Saturday, but the earliest he'll come out of the bullpen would likely be Sunday.
