Josh Beckett made only eight starts last year before being sidelined by surgery, and hopes were not high that’d he’d be a key contributor to the Dodgers’ rotation this season. If he was healthy, great. Anything else was gravy. Well, he’s been more than gravy.
Beckett tossed seven shutout innings last night allowing only four hits against the Cardinals. He got the no-decision, but he was as sharp as a tack. He’s now thrown 14 straight shutout innings and allowed just four runs over his past 29 innings pitched, posting a 1.58 ERA over his last six outings. On the season he’s 6-4 record and 2.11 ERA.
Oh, and the Dodgers are now only two games back of the Giants in the NL West.
