Diamondbacks’ Buchholz pitches seven scoreless innings in win
Clay Buchholz blanked the Angels for seven innings and struck out seven Wednesday to move to 7-2 this season. It was an Angels lineup without Mike Trout, Justin Upton and Shohei Ohtani, leaving Andrelton Simmons as the team's best hitter. Buchholz has feasted on an easy schedule of late, though to be fair, he has looked genuinely good for the most part. Still, the Diamondbacks schedule is about to get a lot tougher down the stretch, and anyone relying on Buchholz in fantasy leagues will need to move on quickly if things start to head south.
