BOS 4, ATL 1: Beckett dealing and Papi  swinging

Josh Beckett continued to dominate the Atlanta Braves and David Ortiz launched his eighth homer of the season beating the Braves, 4-1.
Beckett pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, no walks and struck out six batters. Ortiz finished the night going 1-for-3 with a solo homer in the fifth inning to open the scoring for Boston.
Beckett has made two starts against Atlanta in a week span and did not allow a run.
J.D. Drew, Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis all picked up RBI’s in the win.
Star of the Game – Beckett
It’s pretty obvious why he is the Star of the Game. Had it not for him being sick Beckett may have pitched a complete game.

Next Game – 6/27 vs. Atlanta Braves – Tim Wakefield/Javier Vazquez

Wakefield continues to pitch for his first All-Star game selection. If Wakefield gets 10 wins I think he is selected as an All-Star this season.
