Josh Beckett Wins For First Time In Over A Year

Former Red Sox starter Josh Beckett has been through a lot in the last couple of years. The 2011 September collapse, Beer and Chicken, inclusion in The Great Nick Punto Trade, and rib surgery to deal with a nerve condition—that's a lot of stuff to endure. This year, Beckett has allowed fewer than two earned runs in five of seven starts. The last time he won (September 30, 2012), Mitt Romney still had a shot at ousting Barack Obama. Then, last night, he beat the Marlins. 7-1. For his many strong performances in Carmine Hose and his many charitable efforts while in Boston (most noteworthy, The Beckett Bowl), we wish Josh continued success—until he meets us in the World Series.
