It was a nice and bright sunny afternoon over at Boston's Fenway Park and boy was it a GREAT game.  Josh Beckett was making his 18th start of the Red Sox season, and in search of is 100th career win.  Going into yesterday afternoon's game Beckett was 10-3 with a 3.62 ERA. 

Josh Beckett threw one hell of a game in my perspective only allowing 3 hits over 9 innings of work.  "He was outstanding, not a lot we could do with him today, to be honest with you, and he just came out and threw an INCREDIBLE game." Royals manager Trey Hillman said.  Someone famous once said: Winners never quit and quitters never win.  This is exactly what Josh Beckett did.  He went out their and threw a solid 9 innings with 94 pitches,  allowing only 3 hits.  Francona once stated that he went out and did better than his best and I believe he had fun doing it. 

Beckett made a statement once a pon ago.. and added to it yesterday: Their are many things in life you will remember... Birth, Marrage, and your 100th career win!
