Beckett’s evening

Though it’s not over yet, this has been a semi-impressive outing for Josh Beckett.

Not because he’s been dominating, but more because of his ability to extricate himself. Beckett has given up nine hits tonight, though just one run, as the Yankees hold on to a 1-0 lead.

He’s stranded six batters, and got help when Jason Varitek gunned down Melky Cabrera attempting to steal in the fourth.
