7’s a lucky number

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball

Josh Beckett became the first pitcher in the majors to reach 7 wins last night when the Red Sox rolled into Toronto and put a beat down on the Blue Jays. This improves his record to 7-0, making him the first pitcher since the seventies to hit that mark. The loss also put the Jays on a seven-game losing streak, one that started out on their recent road and has now followed them home. The horizon isn’t looking too bright for the Jays either with Daisuke Matsuzaka starting tonight at the Rogers Centre. The only relief in sight is starting Friday when the Tampa Devil Rays come to visit, but even they are ahead of the Jays in the standings.
