G71: Red Sox 10, Phillies 2

It was the Beckett (8-3-2-0-8, 104), Manny (3-for-4; double, 2 home runs, 4 RBI) and Gabe (1-for-1; 3-run home run) show at Fenway, as the Red Sox outhit the Phillies 13-4 and won their seventh straight game.

With Beckett's performance, Red Sox starters have allowed 3 earned runs or less in each of the last 10 games (19 ER/61.2 IP, 2.79 ERA).

9:37 PM -- Beckett retired the first 16 Phillies, but David Bell singled up the middle. Mid-6th now: Sox up 6-0.

6:30 PM -- Hoping to play despite threats of rain.

After allowing 14 earned runs in two starts to Toronto and New York, Josh Beckett made some mechanical adjustments and surrendered only five earned runs to Texas and Atlanta. ... Ryan Madson pitched 6.2 innings in his last start, against Tampa Bay.

Philadelphia has lots eight of their last 10 -- and the Red Sox have won six straight.

Ryan Madson (5.79) / Josh Beckett (5.09), 7 PM
