Buchholz (8-9) was tagged for five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out three in Wednesday night's loss to Pittsburgh.
Buchholz made a few mistakes that Pirates hitters didn't miss and lasted just 73 pitches. He'd been good of late, having allowed a 3.18 ERA and .202 opponents batting average in his previous seven starts, but still holds an ugly 5.29 ERA on the year. He'll draw the Rays his next time out.
