Josh Beckett seeks redemption this afternoon against the Yankees, the team that handed him his worst loss of the season back in June.
On June 5, New York rocked Beckett to the tune of seven hits and eight runs, seven earned, in just 1 1/3 innings of work. It was his shortest outing of the season. That nearly matched a career-worst for the Red Sox righty, who has lasted just one inning twice in his career, the last time in 2003 while with the Marlins.
Beckett hasnít won since July 24 at Oakland, and has recorded just two victories since the All-Star break.
