Wakefield stifles Rays
Red Sox 3, Devil Rays 0
Julio Lugo scores on David Ortiz's double in the bottom of the first. (Elise Amendola/AP)
 Ortiz's one-run double
 Lowell's one-run double
If any one pitcher has dominated any one team, it's Tim Wakefield and the Devil Rays. In the series opener at Fenway, the veteran knuckleballer retired the first nine batters he faced and did not allow a hit into the seventh inning. He was backed by RBI hits off the bats of David Ortiz, Julio Lugo and Mike Lowell.
