Beckham returned to the Beckham we know and love.
Although Beckham didn't look as bad as Anderson today after being the Friday night hero. Anderson's error might have cost Lopez an inning as well as an unearned run, although Renteria seems more intent on burning out his bullpen than stretching out his starters.

The game shouldn't have been as close as it was. The Sox should have scored more run, although they bottom of the order was able to push across a run in the eighth. Of course, the big two-out double in the first proved all the Sox would need. Still, if your starters on their best days are only going to go six, you're vulnerable to off days from even good bullpens.
