On April 10, 2011 — In the nationally-televised Sunday-night game, the Red Sox shut out the Yankees, 4 – 0, thanks to a dominating performance by Josh Beckett, who gives up only 2 hits in 8 innings while striking out 10. The Red Sox strand 16 baserunners but manage to squeak a run off CC Sabathia on Mike Cameron’s infield single in the 3rd, before tacking on a few insurance runs late in the game. Beckett and Jonathan Papelbon combine to retire the final 17 New York batters in order.
