Did Clay Buchholz pitch himself out of the starting rotation? A miserable five inning performance in which he gave up three two-run homers in an 8-2 loss to Colorado leaves him on shaky ground.

Buchholz had his ERA climb to 6.35 and with Eduardo Rodriguez ready to return to the rotation, a decision is coming.

The other big story from last night's loss - Jackie Bradley Jr. had his 29 game hitting come to an end. He went 0-for-4 while hitting leadoff.

Xander Bogaerts extended his hit streak to 19.

But, the Sox managed just six hits all night.

The Sox(29-18) keep their two game lead over Baltimore in the AL East because the Birds lost again.

Now it's on to Toronto for a weekend series.
