Mark Buehrle fell to 10-5, allowing two runs over eight innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Buehrle pitched well, but Jose Quintana was better, resulting in Buehrle taking his fourth loss out of his last five starts (the other being a no-decision). Buehrle limited the White Sox to six hits -- including Moises Sierra's fourth-inning solo homer -- while walking two and striking out five. Buehrle's stats remain impressive, as he has a 2.50 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 67/30 K/BB ratio. The lefty will face the Athletics on the road in his next start.
Jun 29 - 3:45 PM

Mark Buehrle took the no-decision, allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Buehrle allowed two home runs in an outing for the first time all season. He was victimized by Derek Jeter in the sixth and Brian Roberts in the seventh. Overall, the lefty allowed eight hits, issued no walks, and struck out three batters. Still with an excellent 2.52 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 62/28 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings, Buehrle will go for his 11th win on Sunday at home against the White Sox.
Jun 24 - 10:29 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 10-4, allowing three runs (two earned) over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

A Brett Lawrie fielding error led to an unearned run being scored in the first inning. Buehrle then made a fourth-inning mistake, surrendering a two-run home run to Brian McCann. Overall, the lefty allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out four in the effort. He's lost each of his past three starts and now has a 2.32 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 59/28 K/BB ratio. Buehrle will face the Yankees again next week, but will have home field advantage.
Jun 18 - 10:20 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 10-3, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Blue Jays were defeated 4-2 by the Orioles on Thursday.

It was Buehrle's worst start since the end of April and it wasn't really that bad of a start. He made a mistake in the first inning, surrendering a two-run home run to Delmon Young, but was otherwise solid. He allowed eight hits overall while walking one and striking out three. Buehrle maintains a fantastic 2.28 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 55/26 K/BB ratio in 92 2/3 innings. He'll look to rebound against the Yankees on the road in his next turn on the rubber.
Jun 12 - 10:23 PM

Mark Buehrle delivered another strong performance on Saturday, but was saddled with his second loss of the season since the Blue Jays were unable to provide any semblance of run support.

Buehrle surrendered just one run, a solo homer to Randall Grichuk, on five hits over seven strong innings. He also punched out six on the afternoon while issuing five walks. He has been simply outstanding this season, posting a 10-2 record, 2.05 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 52/25 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings. He’ll look to continue his inexplicable dominance on Thursday when he takes on the Orioles in Baltimore.
Jun 7 - 3:48 PM

Mark Buehrle threw eight innings of shutout ball Sunday in the Blue Jays' 4-0 defeat of the Royals.

Buehrle cruised easily through the Kansas City batting order, yielding just six hits and a walk over his eight scoreless frames. He's now 10-1 on the year with a 2.10 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. The left-hander will try to continue the dominance next time out against the Cardinals.
Jun 1 - 3:24 PM

Mark Buehrle improved to 9-1, allowing four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings as the Blue Jays defeated the Rays 9-6 on Tuesday.

Buehrle becomes the first to nine wins after allowing eight hits and a walk while striking out three. It was Buehrle's toughest outing since April 25, but the Jays brought the lumber to support their lefty. Buehrle now owns a 2.33 ERA and 1.23 WHIP, which he will defend against the Royals at home to open up the month of June.
May 27 - 10:25 PM

Mark Buehrle limited the Red Sox to two runs in seven innings to earn his eighth victory Thursday.

Buehrle avenged his one loss, an April 25 beating in which he gave up seven runs -- six earned -- and 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings. That previous start against Boston was the only one all year in which he'd allowed more than three runs (or two earned). The homer David Ortiz hit off him that day is still the only one he's given up this year.
May 22 - 7:29 PM

Mark Buehrle became baseball's first seven-game winner after allowing two runs in six innings Monday against the Angels.

It was bend-but-don't-break Buehrle tonight, as the left-hander walked five and allowed six hits, but held the Angels to just the two runs. The five walks were two more than he had issued in any of his previous starts this season. Of course, Buehrle isn't going to keep this up, but it is a really nice story. At this rate, he'll clinch his 14th straight 10-win season around June 1.
May 12 - 10:33 PM

Mark Buehrle improved to 6-1 with seven shutout innings as the Blue Jays routed the Phillies 10-0 on Wednesday.

Buehrle earned his MLB-leading sixth win of the season. The crafty lefty allowed only three hits, walked two, and struck out six. Buehrle's ERA fell to 1.91, and Wednesday's outing marked the fifth out of seven starts in which he has allowed one or fewer runs. Buehrle will face the Angels at home in his next outing.
May 7 - 9:48 PM

Mark Buehrle became the third pitcher in baseball to five wins, allowing three runs (two earned) in 6 2/3 innings against the Royals on Thursday.

Buehrle allowed seven hits, walked two, and struck out four. The lefty is enjoying a renaissance season at the age of 35, even including his recent shellacking against the Red Sox on April 25. He now owns a 2.25 ERA in 40 innings over six starts. Buehrle is also nine wins away from a career milestone, 200 wins. At his current rate, he'll pick it up in June, but late July would seem more reasonable.
May 1 - 10:53 PM

Mark Buehrle was absolutely blasted by the Red Sox on Friday, allowing six runs on 12 hits over 5 1/3 innings in his first loss of the 2014 season.

The veteran southpaw walked three and didn’t record a strikeout in the rough outing. It had been clear that a correction was coming after posting a 0.62 ERA, not allowing a homer and posting a strand rate over 90% through his first four starts, and it caught up to him in a big way on Friday. He’ll now carry a 2.16 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into Thursday’s start against the Royals in Kansas City.
Apr 25 - 10:06 PM

Mark Buehrle continued his early season dominance, hurling seven shutout innings to defeat the Indians on Saturday afternoon.

Buehrle surrendered just four hits and three walks while striking out three. The 35-year-old southpaw is now a perfect 4-0 on the season with a stellar 0.64 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 19/5 K/BB ratio through his first 28 innings. He certainly won’t continue at this pace, and may not even prove to be mixed league relevant the remainder of the season, but he should continue to be started until he comes back to earth. He’ll look for his fifth victory when he takes on the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday.
Apr 19 - 3:58 PM

Mark Buehrle earned his third straight win Sunday, holding the Orioles to one run over seven innings.

Buehrle hasn't allowed more than one run in any of his three starts, as he lowered his ERA to 0.86 and WHIP to 0.90 in the win. On Sunday, he gave up just five hits while not walking a batter. The southpaw has it all working right now, and he'll look to keep it going when the Jays visit the Indians next weekend.
