Vintage Wake

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
Vintage WakeTim Wakefield gave the Red Sox and their bullpen a shot in the arm last night, as he pitched 6 2/3 innings of solid ball, allowing just one run as the Sox took the series from the Cubs, 5-1.
Adrian Gonzalez went 4-for-4, Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit first third HR in four games and Kevin Youkilis drove in two runs to ice the game in the 8th.
But Wakefield was the story. Now the oldest player in baseball (and to ever wear a Red Sox uniform), he baffled the Cubs until the seventh inning, when he started to get hit hard. But it didn't tarnish a wonderful night for Wake, who picked up his 194th career win.
The Sox have now won 8 of their last 9 and are 1/2 game behind New York and Tampa Bay. They start a seven-game road trip to Cleveland and Detroit tonight.
And some good news for you Nuf Ced McGreevy fans. A valuable photo of him that was stolen years ago from the Boston Public Library was recently found by an Iowa collector. Here's more from Hauls of Shame.
