Outta leftfield

On June 19, 2001, Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield took a no-hitter into the ninth against the Rays, but centerfielder Randy Winn singled to leftfield.

Wakefield was at it again Thursday. In three innings of relief, he retired the first six batters he faced and didn't allow a hit, striking out five.

"It's hard to have a great approach against him because you don't face guys like that very often," Rays first baseman Steve Cox said. "You've got to hope that he leaves one of those knuckleballs up."
