Josh Beckett hosts Beckett Bowl

He hasn’t been much good on the mound this season, but Josh Beckett tried to make up for it Monday with Beckett Bowl, his annual fund-raiser benefiting the Josh Beckett Foundation and Boston Children’s Hospital. The Red Sox pitcher, aiming for strikes of a different sort, joined several teammates and a slew of Boston sportos — Taylor Twellman, Kevin Faulk, Shawn Thornton, and assorted others were on the guest list — at Jillian’s/Lucky Strike Lanes. The big Texan’s bowling event was followed by a concert at the House of Blues featuring country acts Randy Rogers, Stoney LaRue, Pat Green, and Kevin Fowler. You’ll recall that Fowler has a tune called “Hell Yeah, I Like Beer,” and Beckett, Tim Wakefield, Clay Buchholz, and John Lackey all appear in the video for the song.
