The Red Sox got the win, but the big news was Josh Beckett's less than amazing start. He went 3 innings, allowing 5 runs. He gave up a pair of solo HRs, 5 hits, and threw a wild pitch. He walked one and struck out two. The word from Fort Myers is that he was throwing mostly fastballs and the D-Rays were sitting on them.

Craig Breslow had another good outing, he pitched a perfect inning and struck out a batter. Craig Hansen got the win with an inning of scoreless releif. Youkilis fell back into his slump with an 0 for 3 performance. 8 of the Red Sox 10 hits and all 8 of their RBI came from players that probably won't make the 25 man roster.

The Red Sox host the Orioles tomorrow afternoon.
