Blast from the past
Beckett off target in Bronx
Josh Beckett grew up mirroring Roger Clemens, but the Red Sox ace lacked his best stuff against his idol, allowing a season-high 13 hits and receiving little support from Boston's offense, which didn't get a hit off Clemens until David Ortiz's solo homer, his 25th, in the top of the sixth inning.

Clemens grinds out win
Roger Clemens lost a no-hitter with one out in the sixth inning, using two RBIs from Johnny Damon and Alex Rodriguez's 44th homer to help the Yankees pull to within six games of his former team in the AL East. Mariano Rivera entered with one out in the eighth and notched his 22nd save.
