Ok, can Tim Wakefield get a little run support? If he had some run support, this man would be 7-4, not 7-4. Thankfully, we have a favorable matchup with the Twins sending out Carlos Silva. Silva worked his way back into the rotation after being demoted earlier in the season. Silva's last two starts weren't that great though: 11.0 IP, 19 H, and 9 ER. So hopefully we can attack and salvage a win in this series! I think the Sox need to be patient and wait for a nice, juicy pitch down the middle. They need to score runs and score those early if we want to win.
