Beckett Takes No Hitter Into the 7th, Sox Win

Posted by Ace Staff on June 4th, 2009 in Homepage, Sports

For the past three games, all of the Sox RBI’s came from the top four spots in the order. On Wednesday night, the entire offense contributed behind a stellar effort from the ace of the rotation. Josh Beckett went 7 2/3 innings strong with nine strikeouts and no earned runs. “I thought he was tremendous,” Terry Francona said in a post-game press conference. “He had great stuff, and the ball had great movement. It was fun to watch.” In his last 6 starts Beckett has gone at least 6 innings, hasn’t given up more than three runs. and is undefeated.

While Sox pitching was effective, the defense was costly. The Detroit Tigers got 5 runs on errors in a wild 8th inning. The usually solid Dustin Pedrioa and Mike Lowell each contributed baserunners that would score on Curtis Granderson’s long triple. With the sweep, the Sox gain a share of first place with the New York Yankees.
