This loss should go to Clay Buchholz

This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

Clay Buchholz allowed a career-high 13 hits and allowed six runs in 4⅓ innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The last stinker Buchholz had was October 1, 2012, when he allowed six hits and eight runs in 1⅔ innings against the Yankees.

We know Buchholz has to have to have a stinker every now and then, but this loss is on Buchholz.

The Red Sox took this game to the 11th and finally lost, 7-6, but the way Buchholz pitched they had no reason to be in the hunt for that long. The Brewers, who won the game on a Logan Schafer fly ball to left-center that got between Grady Sizemore and Johnny Gomes and fell for an RBI double, was only made possible by the Brewers’ inability to win the game much earlier when they couldn’t get a hit with runners in scoring position to save their lives.
