Preview of Tonight's Game

Tonight we will see Boston's ageless knuckleballer Tim Wakefield face the Japanese version of Rodney Dangerfield, Tomo Ohka. Wakefield has been stingy so far this year posting a 1.38 ERA, while Ohka has been in a far more generous mood resulting in a 7.84 mark. Look for the tables to turn however as Wakefield is beatable at the Rogers Centre (4.75 career ERA there) and Ohka is due a good outing.

Update: No more predictions. Ohka was strong through the first 5 innings but gave up some rather long singles en route to a 4-1 loss. More analysis to come.
