Tim Wakefield went 8 strong scoreless innings to help lead the Boston Red Sox past the Toronto Blue Jays 7-0.
Wakefield only allowed three hits and struck out four while walking none.
David Ortiz and Jed Lowrie knocked in two RBI’s each and Kevin Cash added a three-run homer in the eighth to make it 7-0.
Star of the Game: Wake
Without question that was the kind of starting pitching Boston needed tonight and Wakefield did more than asked for by not walking a single Blue Jay tonight.
Next game: Sweep the doubleheader
Talk about momentum if the Sox could get that done.
