Tim Wakefield pitched the first seven innings of the game for the Boston Red Sox and he only allowed two hits while the Red Sox beat the Diamondbacks 5-0. It was a great outing by Wakefield and it was a good thing he pitched so well because the Red Sox offense only scored two runs in the game.
Wakefield improved his season record to 5-5 on the season as he picked up the win. Wakefield walked one batter while striking out six others. Manny Delcarmen pitched the eighth inning without giving up a run. Craig Hansen then came in to pitch the ninth inning but gave up two walks and infield single to load up the bases. He was taken out of the game with two outs and Jonathan Papelbon came in and struck out Chad Tracy for the final out of the game.
Brandon Moss had rbi’s for the Red Sox. Moss had a rbi ground out in the second inning and then had a rbi sac fly in the sixth inning. In the eighth inning the Red Sox pushed across three more runs as Kevin Cash hit a three run homer to extend the Red Sox lead to 5-0. The Red Sox need to get the bats going and get some more production going up and down the lineup as they didn’t do much until the eighth inning home run by Cash.
The off day on Thursday will hopefully help out the Red Sox. They will then open up a three game series at Houston this weekend.
