Keppinger hit with two runners on in the 7th inning too. Would much rather have seen Dunn hit there (I can't believe I just said that).
Beckham was brutal offensively and defensively in the Boston series. Add to the fact his average has dropped over 20 points in a few weeks and I not surprised he sat yesterday.
