Beckett Gets # 19 Bo-Sox Bomb Yanks 10-1

It was billed as a game between dueling Cy Young candidates. Boston Red Sox starter Josh Beckett and New York Yankees hurler Chien-Ming Wang both went into Saturday's contest at Fenway Park with identical 18-6 records. Boston fans expected to see a classic pitchers duel take place in front of them. But as so many of these over hyped matchups turn out, this one did not meet the fans expectations. Beckett held up his end of the bargain, going seven innings giving up just one run on three hits. But Wang did not deliver for New York making his way into the sixth with two out but giving up five runs on nine hits. Boston won the game 10-1, pushing their lead back up to 5.5 games and shrinking their magic number down to nine. Any combination of Boston wins and or New York losses that add up to nine would give Boston the A.L. East Division title. New York has won the division for nine straight years. Beckett goes to 19-6, Wang drops to 18-7. Eric Hinske went 2-4 for Boston with a double and a homer, Coco Crisp and David Ortiz also had a two bagger for Boston. The win evened the series at a game apiece.
