"I know I didn't end up with the 'L' beside my name, but it's totally my fault. I can't explain it. I'm quite embarrassed about it... I made some bad pitches and just one of those deals, I guess. That's what big league hitters do when you don't execute pitches. They hit them hard. It's a tough lineup over there. It was just one of those things. There's got to be some kind of deal you learn from this." -- 4.21, Josh Beckett on blowing the game
