JOSH BECKETT GIVES THE RED SOX THEIR WIN
Fri, 17 Jun 2011 11:29 AM EDT

Josh Beckett stepped in and made sure that the Red Sox get their win, add to that the fact that he was having a great day. The right hander had pitched his first one hitter of his career last night which limited the Rays to depending on Reid Brignac’s third inning infield single in a victory that rated the Red Sox 3-0 over the Tampa Bay Rays.

After his fifth career shutout and a first full game since back in 2009 said “I felt good. They were hitting balls at guys, and that’s nice,” “When you miss your spot and they still hit it at somebody, it’s just one of those nights.”

Kevin Youkilis put three runs on the board with a homer and Beckett did his job by retiring 19 batters that he faced in outdueling the rookie Jeremy Hellickson, who was pretty close to him in terms of outs in the seventh inning. Beckett managed to stricke out six and walked for none while he threw 97 pitches as he posted his first ever shutout since he blanked Kansas city 6-0 playing at Fenway Park on 12th July 2009. This was his 10th full game since a 9-1 five inning win over the Rays back in Sept. 2009. Baseball odds

Terry Francona the manager for Boston said “That’s about as good as you can pitch,”

“If it wasn’t for that little 3-iron out of the rough — that ball was about off the dirt,” Francona added. “He was tremendous. It was fun to watch.”

Beckett said “No. Because it was a hit,” “It doesn’t matter who’s playing over there. It doesn’t matter how you draw it up. It’s a hit. It wasn’t a perfect game. It was a one-hitter.”

Gonzalez managed three of the five hits thanks to James Shields in the opener for the series, but all singles. Pedroia got a single in the first one for the first off the great Hellickson and then Jacoby Ellsbury drew a walk in the fourth innings. But both of these baserunners were erased on the double plays. But it was enough to impress Beckett. Baseball betting lines

Youkilis the third base man said “It was unbelievable. I don’t know how he hit that ball,” “There was really no play on it.”
