The Road Back

Josh Beckett is like the guy in the bad movie who delivers the antidote just in time to save humanity from the zombie plague. OK, not exactly, but close.

'The Ace That Could Be' hurled 8 shutout innings, struck out ten, walked only one and mixed his pitches like Joe Biden mixes metaphors. Marco Scutaro delivered the key offensive blow (a two-out. two-run double) to push the lead from 1-0 to 3-0 and provide some psychological comfort at the Fens.

The Red Sox still left a small third world country on base, but a 4-0 win is a win is a win. Actually, to be exact, a win is a win (since we've only got two).
