Beckett surrenders go-ahead homer

PHILADELPHIA – Josh Beckett was no ace today. He surrendered a go-ahead homer to Jimmy Rollins to lead off the seventh on a high fastball. Rollins had been 0-for-14 in the series before the hit. Beckett then allowed a single to Shane Victorino and that’s when terry Francona came out to get him.

The Phils, up 6-5, will now deal with the 1000 mph offerings of Daniel Bard.
