13 and down

It took Josh Beckett 13 pitches to get through the first three batters of the game, ending the inning with two strikeouts (one looking, one swinging) and a groundout to shortstop. The three batters made contact on exactly four pitches, three fouls and that grounder to short.

And, yes, we’re blogging a spring training game. But, really, what else are you going to be doing? Working? Hah.
