Full Game Coverage

Beato's trip to the Major Leagues was brief. He was called up Tuesday to give Boston some added depth in the bullpen, and after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's 11-4 win over Colorado, the 26 year-old was sent back to Pawtucket. In each of his three relief appearances with the Red Sox this season, he hasn't allowed a run.

In Pawtucket, he's 5-1 with a 1.83 ERA in 20 relief appearances.
