Red Sox 4, Rays 3, End 6: Sox Hold Lead, Beckett Finishes With Quality Start

The Red Sox have managed to maintain their 4-3 lead on the Rays through six innings, as Josh Beckett finished his return game in top form, striking out seven batters and allowing just an unearned run over the last five innings.

The Boston offense hasn’t exactly taken advantage of the situation, however, leaving the score exactly where it was after four behind a pair of innings which resulted in a total of one baserunner.

It will be the relief pitching which decides this game. Of course, Boston’s hasn’t been terribly impressive in that regard over their last few contests.
