If I told you at the end of last season to shake off Josh Beckett’s league leading 36 homers allowed because he’ll be 7-0 before the end of May next season you would tell me to lay off the Meth. We are witnessing the future of pitching in baseball evolve. Josh Beckett the young Texan fire baller won his 7th game of the season last night North of the Border in Toronto. Beckett went 7innings 1ER/R 5hits 1BB and 5K’s the earned run being a homer by Alex Rios on the very first pitch of the game. I’ve said it in earlier posts about Beckett he is finally using his other pitches effectively and not trying to blow everyone away with a 97MPH heater.
Beckett wasn’t the only story of the night for the Sox. The Red Sox bats came alive again with home runs from Youkilis , Lowell , Varitek , and Pedroia YEAH PEDROIA ! I’ll say it again to the non believers out there because it needs repeating…..THE RED SOX ARE DOING THIS WITH A COLD MANNY AND PAPI ! Can you just imagine the run support once those two get going ? Hats off to Francona for the job he is doing this season. Roger WHO !
