Red Sox BeerGate has spread up from inside the clubhouse to a couple of steps down from the field of play.

Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and John Lackey drank beer in the Red Sox dugout during games, two Sox employees told Channel 7 today. According to the report, no other Red Sox players participated in the in-game beer drinking, which started as early as the sixth inning. The employees told Ch. 7 that Beckett, Lackey, and Lester would fill plastic cups with Bud Light beer inside the clubhouse and return to the dugout to drink the beers and watch the game.

“Beckett would come down the stairs from the dugout, walking through the corridor to the clubhouse and say, ‘It’s about that time,'" a team employee told Ch. 7. "Beckett was the instigator, but Lester and Lackey were right behind him. It was blatant and hard not to notice what was going on with all three guys leaving at once.”
