G6: Red Sox 4, Orioles 1

Red Sox - 000 022 000 - 4 9 2
Orioles - 100 000 000 - 1 7 1
Three subs provided much of the offense -- CF Adam Stern (2 hits, 2 RBI), 1B JT Snow (2 hits, 1 run), and C Josh Bard (1 hit, 2 runs and 0 PB) -- but again, it was the pitching that was the highlight.
IP H R ER W K PIT
Wakefield 6 5 1 0 2 4 93
Timlin 1 1 0 0 1 1 14
Foulke 1 0 0 0 0 2 12
Papelbon 1 1 0 0 0 0 16
Stern got the start in center and at the top of the order because Coco Crisp injured his left index finger (nothing serious) when he tried to steal third base on Saturday.

Next game for the 5-1 Red Sox -- Tuesday afternoon at glorious Fenway Park.



Previews: Boston / Baltimore.

Don't you think Bard looked great? Wasn't that the best inning Foulke has had since the 2004 World Series?

Foulke! Speed! Accuracy! Delightful!

The reports of Wakefield's demise were greatly exaggerated. Three swinging K's in the final inning he pitched, all with men on the corners. Just a great game to watch...like most of them have been.
