BALTIMORE (AP) -Josh Beckett came within one out of a shutout and became the first major leaguer to reach 15 wins, and Julio Lugo and J.D. Drew had two RBIs apiece to help the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Saturday.
Beckett (15-5) allowed eight hits, struck out eight and walked none in 8 2-3 innings. He was lifted after Miguel Tejada hit a run-scoring single and Kevin Millar followed with an RBI double.
