Only days after moving Clay Buchholz from the starting rotation to the bullpen, Joe Kelly was optioned to AAA Pawtucket following a "performance" in which he allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks in just 2.1 innings.
It followed his previous outing in which he allowed five runs in 4.2 innings against Toronto.
Buchholz, as it turned out, was actually the losing pitcher in Wednesday night's 13-9 Orioles victory over Boston at Camden Yards.
Making his second appearance out of the bullpen, Buchholz allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits and four walks in 3.1 innings. Looking for a silver lining? At least he didn't give up a home run.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
