Finally, some good news for the Red Sox pitching staff.



Josh Beckett is fine after leaving Friday's game with a hyperextended left knee and has been cleared to pitch for the American League in Tuesday's All-Star Game, ESPN.com is reporting.



Three Boston starters are already on the disabled list, and there's speculation John Lackey could end up there, too.



Manager Terry Francona has reportedly informed Major League Baseball that Beckett can pitch in the midsummer classic. The right-hander pitched five innings in Friday's 10-3 win over the Orioles before slipping on a wet pitching rubber.



Boston carries a five-game winning streak into today's first-half finale against Baltimore at Fenway Park (1:35 p.m., NESN, WEEI).
