How are we going to beat this team or Tampa Bay?

Don't expect anyone to have seen it since the Bruins and Celtics were in playoff games at the same exact time, but hey look it's the Red Sox and the Yankees.

For the 10 hopeless bastards that chose to watch baseball over the much more important basketball and hockey games, Sox (14-15) starter Josh Beckett did his best to make sure you didn't enjoy anything at Fenway Park last night if you were a Red Sox fan.

The Yankees (20-8) won 10-3, thanks to a six-run sixth inning. In 5.1 innings, Beckett gave up nine earned runs on nine hits with three walks and eight strikeouts.

He started out with seven strikeouts in the first three innings but typical of any Beckett hot start like that, especially against New York, he completely fell apart as soon as you noticed how much he was dealing in the first few innings.

Phil Hughes (4-0) has finally found his form after a couple forgettable years bouncing between the Yankees' rotation and bullpen. In seven innings, he gave up two earned runs on seven hits with a walk and seven strikeouts.

Nick Swisher had a three-run bomb in the fourth for New York and the six runs in the sixth were all plated by walks, hit by pitches, a sacrifice fly and singles.

C.C. Sabathia opposes Clay Buchholz this afternoon.
