Beckett’s work is complete against the Cards: four runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one, struck out fours, and dropped about 73 F-bombs while killing no one.

The bats are afire: seven runs on 14 hits through six.

Then there’s this:

BAY DEHYDRATED (2:23, END 5, 3-1 SOX)Bay left the game after three innings due to dehydration. It’s nothing serious beyond today’s game. The Red Sox scored another run in the fifth when Kevin Youkilis hit an RBI groundball, scoring Pedroia, who reached on an infield single. J.D. Drew ripped a nice, line-drive hit to right, but was stranded.

Dehydrated? Really? We called it hungover when I that age. Man up, Jason.
