Boston vs Toronto Game 7 Scouting Report:

A high pitch count forced Halladay out early for the second game in a row, but that didn't stop of from picking up his second straight win. The right-hander threw 99 pitches in 5 1/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees. He allowed seven hits, but he worked well out of jams -- forcing 10 groudnouts versus just two fly outs. On April 22, Halladay picked up a win against Boston after allowing one run on six hits in five innings.

Beckett is coming off arguably the worst start of his career. In that humbling loss at Cleveland, Beckett was belted for a career-high of nine runs, eight of which were earned. In this one, he will have a chance for redemption against the Blue Jays after giving up three homers in a no-decision on April 21.
