Just when you thought Clay Buchholz might have figured things out again....

The lanky red Sox righty was sailing along with a shutout through seven innings before things took a turn for the worse. The Tampa Bay Rays erupted for five runs in the top of the eighth - all charged to Buchholz - en route to a 6-2 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI double by Daniel Nava but wouldn't score again until Jemile Weeks drove in Mookie Betts with a sacrifice fly four innings later.

Buchholz was ultimately charged with five runs on eight hits and a walk over 7.2 innings. He struck out six as his record fell to 8-10.
