Wakefield Catches 2nd in Wins
Last night, the Red Sox crushed the Florida Marlins, 8-2. One of the most important events of the night, was Tim Wakefield, moving into a tie for 2nd place in Wins with a 9-3 record this year, with a 4.29 ERA, which is not as impressive as the record. Today's knuckler worked pretty darn well as he worked 4 K's through 6 innings. Another important event is David Ortiz's 5th HR of the season. It was a solo shot into the Marlins' bullpen which jump-started an excellent 6-run inning. Later in that inning, Papi got a 2-run single as well. We will see if Wakefield can move to 1st place on Sunday against Atlanta.
