The Boston Red Sox
are sending the right guy to the mound tonight, looking to end a demanding three-game skid, which has cost them sole first place in the American League East.
Josh Beckett is 6-0 after a loss, and is shooting for lucky number seven.
has suffered an offense implosion over the past three games, all losses. The three runs they scored in Monday's 6-3 setback were the team's highest offensive output of that stretch.
Scoring three runs at best is not exactly going to win games and the bats need to wake up now before it's too late.
The Yankees are hosting Baltimore
in the Bronx followed by Oakland
for a long four-game series.
