"At times you go through those stretches where you almost say, 'Man, I wish I was giving up some hits and home runs, and kind of get them out of the way for the season,' but I feel good," Buehrle said.
Manager John Gibbons liked what he saw.
"He pitched great," Gibbons said. "I thought that one mistake he made was to [Chris] Young, [who hit a two-run double], but he finally got him. He's the old warhorse. He knows what he needs to do to get ready and I think he's really excited because he's felt so good."
The veteran Buehrle, 35, finishes camp with seven runs allowed on 17 hits, three walks and five strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings, but the stats line isn't what he's focused on heading into the season.
"Obviously, the results in Spring Training don't mean [anything], but you still want to get people out, if it's in Spring Training or during the season," he said. "I feel good, and I think that's the biggest thing I'm taking out of this camp. I feel healthy, I'm ready to go, and hopefully, the results are there."
