Beckett Proving his Game

Josh Beckett got all the run supported he needed tonite, with Dustin Pedroia, Mike Lowell, Kevin Youkilis, and Jason Varitek belting homeruns to give Boston a 9-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. What a difference this year has been for Beckett, who improves his record to 7-0, compared to last year, when he allowed a career high 36 homeruns last year. Theres a good reason why he's pitching this way, and its because of the run support. When Beckett is on the hill, The Sox have now scored 50 runs,for an average of 9.64 runs per nine innings that is the second-highest in the majors behind the 9.84 afforded Dontrelle Willis of the Florida Marlins. If the Sox can continue this, than Josh Beckett will be the front runner for Cy Young by the All Star Break.
