Daily Roundup, 05/14/11

Uh with the Yankees deciding it’s 1978 all over again, I got rather distracted. Sorry, guys.

– The Yankees have been shut out twice this season by Josh Beckett…
— who has a career ERA around 6 against them.

– The Diamondbacks had one hit and won.
— That hit was not a home run.

– The Padres rallied from down 7-1 to win 9-7.

– Jose Bautista has two opposite field HRs since he started his crazy HR hitting in 2010 (really, September 2009). They’re both at Target Field.
— Poor Minnesota. Poor, poor Minnesota.

– Brad Bergesen threw a four-hit shutout against the Rays.

– Ryan Vogelsong complete game shutout, too! (Okay, it was six innings and rain-shortened.)

    Around 6? Really? Hmm…well, it was about 4.77 entering last season. Admittedly 2010 was a horrible year for Beckett and he managed to make 5 starts against the Yankees despite spending a long time on the DL, failing to make a quality start in any of them. (Thanks to the Red Sox offense, he still managed to get a win against them in 2010, in a game in which he went 6.2 and gave up five runs, all earned.) Including the two wins this year, Beckett has a career record of 13-8 against the Yankees. These two games are, in fact, the fourth and fifth times that Beckett has kept the Yankees off the scoreboard, and although only one of those was a complete-game shutout (Game 6 of the 2003 World Series), all five ended with the Yankees scoreless after nine innings. (Of course, one of those was this game.) So this isn’t exactly something new.
