Jimmy’s pitchers duel of the day

I was looking at today’s games and pitcher duels and for the first time I wasn’t indecisive,I knew one duel is gonna be better than all other ones..The 4-games series of the biggest rivalry in baseball starts today at the Fenway Park in Boston..The pitchers who have the honor to start the game today are Hiroki Kuroda for the Yankees and Josh Beckett for the Red Sox..

Kuroda (8-7, 3.17 ERA) is pitching better and better with every next start and I’m finally not a pissed Yankees’ fan whenever he steps on the mound..He has 7 earned runs in his last 5 starts and his ERA has dropped all the way to 3.17 with a WHIP of 1.22..His last start was against the White Sox when he had 3 hits, a walk and 11 strikeouts in 7 innings pitched..

Beckett(4-7, 4.06 ERA) wasn’t impressive in his last 5 starts ,he has 14 earned runs and 29 hits with 3 losses and 2 ND..His ERA is always around 4.10 but his WHIP is 1.15,and he’s ranked 6th in AL in WHIP..His last start was a ND against Seattle when he had 4 hits, 3 walks and 4 strikeouts in 6 innings pitched..
