Beckett Cuts Down Angels....Manny Day To Day
Josh Beckett was efficient and deadly for 6 innings as the Angels were free swinging and easily tamed. He started the seventh but left after a few pitches. The cause? A cut on his right middle finger, near the nail. We have to hope it won't cause him to miss a start. Timlin and Paps combined to record the next nine outs in a nail-biting finish to this, the Sox' second victory in a row. Combined with a Yankees loss, things indeed do look better. And lest (lest?) I forget, Big Papi hit his 46th tater as he inches closer to that 50 HR mark. And hey, we have 6 more days left in August. My goodness!
In Manny news, it's all good. The MRI showed no structural damage to his ailing knee, and he is listed day to day. The Big Schill goes tonight in the first of three with Seattle, who ended up taking 2 of 3 from the pinstripers. Thank you for that.
