Video: Previewing tonight's pitching matchup
May, 19, 2011
In the video above, BBTN’s Steve Berthiaume and Aaron Boone break down tonight’s great pitching matchup between Josh Beckett and Justin Verlander.
Boone starts off talking about Verlander, who has been pitching great lately. Boone says Verlander has all his pitches – fastball, curveball and changeup -- working. In Verlander’s last two starts (one a no-hitter) he’s given up just one run and two hits in 17 innnings.
Boone says Beckett has returned to his old form and been an ace for the Sox. He adds that Beckett, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz might be the top starting trio in baseball.
