All was according to plan for Josh Beckett until the bottom of the seventh inning with two outs, when he threw a low strike three that just squeaked through catcher Jason Varitek’s legs for the Angels to tie it up 3-3. LA then came up with the go ahead run in the ninth, putting a stop to Boston’s win streak at seven games. Beckett pitched through eight innings and let up three runs off seven hits.
“They’re a good team, and they know how to win games,” said Beckett. “They end up scoring a run, and you’re not even quite sure how it happened. That’s what good teams do. They find ways to play for one run in an inning. That’s a good team.”
The Red Sox will now travel to Baltimore to face the Orioles for a three game weekend series starting tonight at 7:05. They are then set to square off against the Kansas City Royals before meeting up with the New York Yankees in the Bronx.
