Video: ESPN crew on Beckett, Pedey
In the video above, the Sunday Night Baseball crew discusses Josh Beckett's 8-inning, 1-hit performance and Dustin Pedroia's game-winning hit in Boston's 1-0, 16-inning victory over the Rays that ended close to 2 a.m.
"His swings right now are those MVP-quality swings that we've known from a couple of years ago," Bobby Valentine said of Pedroia, who was 3 for 7 in the game (the rest of the team, meanwhile, was 2 for 45).
