As if you thought it couldn't get any worse for Red Sox starters. Handed a 4-0 lead going into the top of the third inning, Clay Buchholz imploded, allowing five runs (four earned) before being removed after recording just two outs in the inning against the Blue Jays Tuesday night. Toronto had five hits (all singles) in the inning. He finished the outing going 2 2/3 innings allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits while walking one and striking out four. Buchholz now has an ERA of 5.76 and Red Sox starters now have an ERA of 6.03, the worst in the majors. It's the eight time in 21 games the Red Sox starter has failed to make it out of the fifth inning. For more Red Sox news, check out
