Tim Wakefield Keeps Indians At Bay In Red Sox's 3-2 Win

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Tim Wakefield spun 7 1/3 solid innings on a milestone night and the Red Sox capitalized on one error to score all of their runs in a 3-2 win over Cleveland in the second of a four-game set at Progressive Field.

Wakefield (2-4) yielded two runs -- one earned -- on only four hits, while striking out six as he became Boston's all-time leader in innings pitched with 2,777. Daniel Bard worked a scoreless ninth to preserve the Red Sox's ninth win in the last 11 meetings between the teams.

Kevin Youkilis, who had three hits, David Ortiz and Bill Hall each drove in a run during a three-run fourth inning rally that sent the Sox to their fourth win in five games.

David Huff (2-7) absorbed the loss after yielding three unearned runs on eight hits, while walking one and striking out six, as the Indians lost their third in a row and fifth in their last seven games.
