After struggling to a 12-10, 4.03 2008 campaign, Boston’s Ace Josh Beckett got things started on the right foot today. Josh worked out of an early jam and cruised to seven two-hit, one-run Innings. He did struggle a little with his control, as evidenced by his three walks, but he racked up 10 Ks. 61 of his 93 pitches went for Strikes. Great news for Red Sox Nation. Bad news for the Rays and the Yankees.
