Extra Bases

Buchholz shaky again

BALTIMORE – Don’t know how many more chances Clay Buchholz is going to get. With Tim Wakefield throwing on the side again yesterday and a few days away from being activated, Buchholz isn’t making much of a case for staying.

With a 4-0 lead to maintain, Buchholz nearly gave it all back. It’s 4-3 as the Orioles touched him up for three runs in the second inning. A pair of walks really hurt him as did Brian Roberts’s bases-loaded two-run single. Lou Montanez also drove in a run.
