During today’s game, the 2-1 right-handed pitcher, Josh Beckett, will start for the Red Sox against right-handed pitcher, Tyler Chatwood, who is 1-1 with a 3.75 ERA. Josh Beckett has a 1.80 ERA so far in the season and a .60 ERA in his last two games. Chatwood, a rookie, discovered his deadly sinker against the White Sox. Obviously, for Beckett to win, he needs his team to hit the ball. About a week and a half ago, this was an issue. However, now Jed Lowrie, Kevin Youkilis, and J.D. Drew are starting to hit more pitches. Each one of these hitters contributed homeruns yesturday against A’s pitcher, Gio Gonzalez. However, the Angels are no pushover. Their right fielder, Tori Hunter is very good defensively. Erick Aybar and Maicer Izturis are currently good hitters for the Angels. This game intends to be a good one.
