Players of the Night
Josh Beckett, Boston Red Sox
vs. Minnesota Twins
7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 8 K, 4 BB, W
It looks like Josh Beckett is starting to turn the corner and head straight back to becoming one the game's elite fantasy pitchers. After back to back starts at the end of April in which he gave up a combined 15 earned runs in only 9.2 innings of work, Beckett has now produced five quality starts with only nine earned runs allowed.
He's as dominant as they come and for those of you who were patient are reaping the benefits. For those of you who scooped him up at the right time from a panicky owner, we congratulate you.
Luke Scott, Baltimore Orioles
vs. Detroit Tigers
2-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI
Don't feel bad because we barely had this guy on our radar up until a couple weeks ago. But it might be time for you to keep Scott in mind if you're looking for a little extra pop in your lineup.
Despite recently returning from a shoulder injury, Scott has been straight raking in his last five games played going 10-for-16 with four home runs. Not too shabby Mr. Scott.
