Wakefield Acheives History With Magnificent Start (35-25)

Last night the Red Sox beat the Indians 3-2 and Tim Wakefield (right) got the Red Sox record in innings pitched (2776.1) with 7.1 innings of 2 run ball. He is now 2-4/5.48/35 as he has not been too sharp this year other than a few good starts. In the 4th inning, there were 2 outs and no one on base when Victor Martinez lifted a deep fly ball to center field that came to the warning track where Trevor Crowe was waiting... and he botched it! That inning should have been a 1-2-3 inning, but the Sox rallied after the error and scored 3 times. Tonight, Clay Buchholz (8-3/2.39/49) and former Red Sock Justin Masterson (1-5/5.46/55) take the hill in Cleveland tonight. The Sox have at least a series tie, but we want a sweep!

  1. Yay Wakefield! I really admire his staying power and dedication to the Sox. We can continue to count on lots of good pitching from him.
