8/13 Wakefield vs. Shields

Every start of Tim Wakefield’s this year has ended in a decision. In his last 11 starts he has been 8-3. Even though he has had a 5.46 ERA in that time. There is something to be said of luck. Maybe a hard fought Wakefield win is just what we get the Sox to gel and get them out of their recent slump. He’ll be facing James Shields who has struggled since the All-Star Break going 2-3 with a 6.17 ERA.


-In Wakefield’s 2 starts against Tampa this year he has 2 wins and a 3.65 ERA.

-Boston has lost 4 of 6. Tampa is 5-5 in their last 10 and still bottom in the AL East.

-The Red Sox have 12 games remaining against the Devil Rays, about 29% of their schedule.
