Yankees: Before deciding to schedule Wang for last Thursday's game against the Rangers, the Yankees made sure to discuss the byproduct of that decision: Wang would also fall in line for a start against the Red Sox in Boston. Hardly pitching well enough to justify that faith, Wang allowed five runs to the Rangers over 4 2/3 innings at Yankee Stadium, flashing his old velocity but not his old results. Still, he is scheduled to start at Fenway Park, where he has posted a 3-3 record and 5.11 ERA over the course of his career.
Red Sox: The knuckleballer was strong in his last start, allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Tigers. Wakefield walked none and struck out three en route to career victory No. 185. This is Wakefield's fifth start of the season at Fenway, where he is 4-0 with a 3.00 ERA. This is Wakefield's first start of the season against the Yankees. He has had mixed results against New York in his career, going 10-17 with a 5.03 ERA.
