In his final two starts of April, Buchholz allowed 11 runs over 13 innings, but managed to pick up the win in each of them with the Sox scoring 18 runs. He finished the month 3-1, but sported an 8.69 ERA.
Now, Buchholz is pitching extremely well, tossing eight and seven innings of one-run ball in his last two starts, but didn’t factor in the decision in either of them.
But the Red Sox picked up two much-needed wins in each of those starts, and that is all Buchholz is concerned about.
“I think every starter goes out to do one thing which is pitch as deep in the game you can and give your team a chance to win,” Buchholz said after allowing just one run off three hits in Boston’s 2-1 win over the Texas Rangers Tuesday night. “It was a tough team to score against and a tough team to hold down; I’m really happy we got the win.”
