You see that boy pitching? That BOY is a full fledge EAST TEXAS BOY where they grow pitchers like wildflowers. Beckett took the mound last night and took back his place in the rotation as if he wasn't even gone. Not pitching in a game for 15 days and returning like Pitching 7 innings and striking out 7 as well. His 8th Win for the season. And like any good Texas boy should do, he was humble as quoted in the Globe:
"If you can take anything good out of that seventh inning, it's that my finger didn't blow up on me," Beckett said. "The bullpen came in and did a great job. We scored enough runs."
But as anyone knows a Texan boy does NOT whine or moan about any blister or avulsion...he gets out there and just does his job.
Beckett is Back !!
**Now who the heck is this pitcher the Yankees have coming in?? **
