Josh Beckett was nothing short of phenomenal tonight. Nothing more spectacular than dominant postseason performances on the mound, in baseball terms of course. I mean really, his fastball was dominating. He weaved it in and out, up and down, side to side, kept it wide. Beckett’s final line: CG, 4H, 8K, 0BB, repeat zero walks. And he totaled 108 pitches, 83 were strikes! And as the announcers kept repeating, he established the strike early in counts. And by early, I mean on the first pitch. At one point, after giving up a leadoff hit to Figgins in the first, Beckett retired 19 straight batters. I was in awe much of the night. And I know that the Angels were banged up some, but the performance would have been great against the Royals. And this lineup was better than that of the Royals.
