Red Sox Win Rain-Shortened Game 1

UPDATE: The Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 10-1 in Game 1 of a day/night doubleheader. The game was called after seven innings due to rain, but officials expect to play Game 2 tonight.

Tim Wakefield pitched a 7-inning complete game, allowing just one run in lowering his season ERA to 2.45.

Check back later for a full recap of the doubleheader on Sports of Boston.

The Red Sox and Twins could not get their game in during the peroids of heavy rains in Boston on Tuesday, so the two teams will play in a day-night doubleheader starting at 12:35 Wednesday. Tim Wakefield will face Scott Baker in Game 1, and Brad Penny will start Game 2 against Francisco Liriano.

During the forced off-day, the Red Sox placed OF Rocco Baldelli on the 15-day DL with a strained hamstring and called up Jeff Bailey from Pawtucket.

They also learned that SS Jed Lowrie underwent successful wrist surgery, and could return to the team this season. He won’t be able to swing a bat for the next six weeks, however.
