youk.gifThe biggest question at Fenway on Tuesday night was how would Josh Beckett’s finger respond. Well, he answered that right away in the first inning when he showed the Indians all of his pitches. Kevin Youkilis remains absolutely on fire with a 21 game hitting streak and even his good buddy, Dustin Pedroia, has a 9 game hitting streak of his own. So with that being said, let’s look at what the Boston area and Cleveland media had to say about the game.
