Josh Beckett lost again last night on a "first class, white trash" pitch.
The struggling Red Sox starter, who has now won only once in the last two months, blew an early two-run lead against the Texas Rangers, was bailed out by a Dustin Pedroia home run in the sixth that tied the game and then promptly threw it all away in the seventh. He hit Elvis Andrus, gave up a hard single to Adrian Beltre and then threw a wild pitch into the vacant left-handed batter's box that got past a diving Kelly Shoppach with Michael Young at the plate.
