With Mike Lowell out of the lineup, we get a second straight day of Gold Glove candidate David Ortiz’s defense at first. (You laugh, but name a first baseman with a higher fielding percentage this year).
We also get a pretty good pitcher’s duel of our own — Josh Beckett, who has been stellar in his last two starts, against Brett Myers, whose numbers aren’t too shabby either.
Last night, we got an awesome performance from Clement in which he pitched out of a first-inning jam. Did Beckett take notes on how not to allow a run in the opening frame? We shall see … Comment away!
