Josh Beckett Can Still Kick Ass With Stomach Cramps

Neither the FAILHAT nor stomach cramps could stop the Red Sox ace from doing his usual ownage of the Braves; he is now 6-0 with an 0.38 ERA in his last 6 starts against Atlanta. The abdominal issues limited his outing to 98 pitches but he was able to go 7 shutout innings giving up just 6 hits with no walks and 6 K's. Oki came in and made it a little interesting but then struck out the side in the 8th preserving the shutout until Paps came in to pitch the 9th. Papelbon gave up a homer and a hard hit ball to the gap before recording the final out of the game.

Ortiz broke up the scoreless game in the 5th with his 8th homer of the year. Pedroia and Drew each had 2 hits in the game.

Red Sox Win 4-1 BOX SCORE

Beckett was awesome tonight. He's been on a roll.

I think the stomach cramps just pissed him off so he pitched even better.

Nothing can stop that kick arseness that is Josh Beckett. Nothing. And the Braves are well aware of this.

Remember when all those silly people in April were wondering if Becks was worthy of being called our ace? Ah, silly rabbits.
