Beckett Shines Again...Boston 4 Cleveland 2

The Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 4-2. The keys to the win? Josh Beckett's pitching and Jason Varitek's offense and defense. Without an effective curveball, Josh modified his pitches with cut fastballs and change ups. Here he is...

“You have to deal with what you’ve got. You’re not going to go out there and have every pitch every time you pitch.’’

Beckett's ERA dropped to a tremendous 1.69 and he upped his record to 4-1. He is our ace again, with honorable mentions to Buchholz and Lester. Now if we could get a solid number 4/5 starter (Lackey), we'd be in great shape. Red Sox manager Terry Francona had this to say about his number one guy...

“He’s been so consistent, which is a great thing. I think he feels good about himself. He should.”

'Tek threw out two crucial runners and clubbed a two run tater off the fair pole. A great job from our two Js. It's afternoon baseball starting at 12:05pm EDT. Lester will try to make it two straight over the Indians. They're super tough playing at home so this would be SUCH a big win. Congrats go out to 'Tek and Beckett, our number one guys again.
