BoSox blast Twins in rain-shortened game

BY foxsports • April 23, 2009

The Boston Red Sox needed another long outing from Tim Wakefield, and the 42-year-old knuckleballer came through for the second start in a row.

Wakefield pitched a five-hitter for his second consecutive complete game and Boston's sixth straight win — this one a seven-inning, 10-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins as rain shortened the opener of a scheduled day-night doubleheader.
