Game Notes:BOSTON: WASHINGTON: Tim Wakefield (4-8, 3.97) Livan Hernandez (5-7, 5.18) Youkilis 1B Soriano LF Loretta 2B Vidro 2B Ortiz DH Guillen RF Ramirez LF Anderson DH Nixon RF Zimmerman 3B Lowell 3B Fick 1B Crisp CF Clayton SS Mirabelli C Schneider C Cora SS Byrd CF
Cora starts again for the second night in a row, probably because Gonzalez is a .098 (4-for-41) against the Nats' starter, Hernandez ... Wakefield has been great at home: 51.2 IP, 28 SO, 14 BB, 3.14 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, .203 BAA ... Foulke is still hurting pretty bad. No time table on his return, if he returns ... Francona had a meeting with the young relievers today. He told them the coaching staff had faith in them (let's see that, Terry) ... Lowell is a .362 (17-for-47, 7 2B, 1 HR) hitter versus Hernandez ... Gary DiSarcina is the color man tonight. Woohoo!
