Beautiful Beckett Brilliance

****MANNY (2) AND THE GABE HOMER***SOX STREAK AT 7****

It was all Josh Beckett for the Red Sox last night, at least when it came to the pitching. He was brilliant, almost unhittable through 8, and Manny gave us all the runs we needed with a first inning 3 run homer. "The Gabe," Gabe Kapler, also hit one out in his one at bat, as he came in for Manny late in the game. Mike Timlin finished it out, and sent the crowd home late, but happy. The game was delayed for about 45 minutes by rain, but boy, was it worth the wait! Also of note-Alex Gonzalez extended his team record for games without an error to 51, and the team hit the 11 game mark of errorless ball, breaking the mark held by the 1986 team, which will be honored on Tuesday. Sweet stuff.
Today, with the rain's permission, in a game to be shown on Fox TV, EVEN HERE IN CONNECTICUT, Curt Schilling once again goes after number 10, to be opposed by the wretched wife-beater Brett Myers. I hope the fans have just the right kind of greeting for this a**hole.
And we go for 8.
