My good friend, Cyn, had the best title of her live blog today....and she predicted SO accurately what was coming. As in the ole quote out of the film about Wyatt Earp when he was warning the town..."tell them I'm coming and Hell's coming with me!" Well today JPB took the bump and perhaps he was channeling his inner child and thought he was playing cowboys and indians...cos he made it war on those Braves. (no offense to anyone reading)
7 K's, no walks, 5 singles and only 1 double was allowed by Beckett...winning the game with 3-0.
It was also the first appearance by Lowe since he helped us out of a drought and win the World Series in 2004. It appeared he was received well and given a standing ovation after he was taken out of the game. Tip of the hat and all.
Beckett appeared to be in 2007 form...the year he didn't win the Cy and should have. I'm ready to see my Sox again this July and August...
