Red Sox Offense Comes Alive for Wake

Tim Wakefield won his third game of the season although he needed some help from the Red Sox bats. He gave up 5 runs in 7 innings of work on 5 hits and 2 walks. Boston's offense put up 10 runs with 13 hits including a home run by Mike Lowell. Green had 3 hits and 3 RBI's in the game, which is sure to make the Lugo's return that much harder. Ellsbury had 3 stolen bases. The final game of the series take place tomorrow at the Trop.

Wakefield would go on to pitch for another 11 years and became Captain of the Red Sox after Jason Varitek's retirement...

The rest of the team would affectionately refer to him as "Grandpa" and joke about his turn in the rotation as "When's the wake?"

Wake has been such a team player that they should retire his number when he is done

I second that motion.
