Josh Beckett can control this game. Throwing his curveball for strikes is the key, as only Vlad and Kendrick are good hook hitters from a righty, as previously mentioned. He needs to continue to do what has made him the one of the best pitchers in the A.L. this season as he said this March.

...the key to “…this season is keeping my walks down.” Throughout the spring, his control has improved because he is “…just relaxing…and throwing my pitch and getting back to the way I used to throw not trying to throw hard from the get go. I’m slowing everything down.” said the Texass flame thrower. Beckett expanded by stating “It is just a feeling…going slower at the beginning and not rushing threw your delivery. It helps me just throw the ball late…The last foot and a half of my arm slot is what dictates how hard and where I’m going to throw it.”

Beckett can win this game if he pitches like he has all year.


Big Papi and Manny own John Lackey. Ortiz is 10 for 26 with six hits for extra bases (2 homers) - four walks and six strikeouts. Manny is 10 for 23 - four dingers, three doubles, seven walks and four strikeouts. The dynamic duo is back!
