Curses! Foiled again! (Sox win)

Tim Wakefield was thwarted yet again in his quest for his 200th MLB win tonight in Minnesota despite allowing only 3 earned runs in 7 innings pitched. He struck out 4 Twins and did not walk any. Alfredo picked up a BS, but also earned the win. Papelbon pitched a 1-2-3- 9th inning.

Offensively, the Red Sox mashed 17 hits, count 'em, 17 hits. Ortiz led the attack with a 4/5 performance, including a go-ahead single in the top of the 9th inning. One night after going 4/4, Marco Scutaro notched 3 more hits in 4 at-bats. Jed Lowrie will have his work cut out for him.

Red Sox 8 Twins 6 BOX SCORE
