Beloved veteran Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield won his 199th career game on July 24th. He’s since had 6 starts, but the 45-year-old Wakefield, the oldest player in the major leagues, hasn’t managed a victory in any of them.
In those six starts, he’s had the lead in the 6th inning or later 3 times, and was tied in 7th in another, but hasn’t yet been able to come away with the win.
Wakefield will be available to pitch from the bullpen this week, then will get another start in Toronto next week.
