SOX RIDE THE WAKE
With two starters toting 6.00+ ERAs, you'd expect a slugfest. But instead, it was more of a pitcher's duel. As the Sox edged the Indians 3-2.
The Sox scored all their runs in the 4th. Youkilis had an RBI double, then Ortiz an RBI single and eventually Hall had an RBI double to knock in Ortiz. And that would be all that Wakefield and the bullpen would require.
Okajima and Ramirez each recorded one out. And Bard got the save. But it was Wakefield's 7.1 innings that spearheaded the effort.
The Sox go for the sweep tonight as 1-5 Justin Masterson, an old friend, opposes 8-3 Clay Buchholz.
