Wasted Wake

Tim Wakefield gave up one earned run on three hits over eight innings - striking out a career-high 12 in the process - and all he had to show for it was an 'L'.

The Sox are still 3 games up in the AL East, but this one hurt. Wakefield threw one bad pitch all night and that was the ballgame. For the neutral observer, it was a fine pitchers' duel, but it was no fun to be on the nail-biting, losing end of it.

I love this game, but I swear it will one day be the death of me.
