Wakefield turned in another good start (6.1-7-4-2-2, 90). Three of those his four runs allowed came in the seventh on hits off Javier Lopez (who also allowed one of his own).
Manny Delcarmen put a stop to that nonsense and ended the seventh, then pitched a scoreless eighth, before Snuffer did some snuffing in the ninth.
Coco Crisp tripled and scored in the first, JD Drew doubled twice, Jacoby Ellsbury doubled and got his first major league RBI, Mike Lowell lined a two-run home run into the Monster Seats -- hell, even Doug Mirabelli singled in two runs.
Dusteaters Watch: Johan Santana and the Twins four-hit the Yankees 6-2 (Happy Birthday, Porgie!). Toronto beat Oakland 10-3. The Blue Jays are 11.5 GB, the Chokers are 12 GB. ... At 52-31, the Red Sox once again have the best record in MLB.
Edwin Jackson (6.88, 65 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.31, 103 ERA+)
I'm taping today's game, staying away from the Internets, and will treat it like a night game (without commercials). Have fun!
