Game 53 - Tigers game 2

As always all stats are from the day by day database found at Baseball Musings, a valuable tool for any die hard fan and prognosticator.

Wakefield faces Bonderman today, both pitchers have very similiar stats for the season with Bonderman ahead in wins and Wake having the better ERA.

Bonderman has started 3 games against the Sox at home the last two years. He has a 5.19 ERA with 2 wins and 1 loss in those starts. Only one of the starts would be classified as a quality start. In all 6 of his starts against the Sox, Bonderman is 2 and 4 with a 6.25 era and 2 quality starts.

Wakefield has started 18 games (6 quality starts) against the Tigers over the last 11 years. At Detroit Timmy is 4 and 3 with a 6.12 ERA over 42 2/3 innings. As a starter overall he has a 12 and 5 record with a 4.46 ERA. In his last two appearances at Comerica, Wake has gone 12 innings giving up 10 runs (including that 6 hr game on 8/8/2004).
