Today's game will be an interesting contrast between two pitchers whose styles are complete opposites. On one side for the Red Sox is Tim Wakefield, who doesn't throw a pitch over 85mph, yet he's 9-and-3 on the year at age 42. On the other side for the Braves is the power pitcher Javier Vazquez, who is second in the league in strikeouts.
Power vs. off-speed trickery.
Red Sox lead the series 1-0
