The knuckleball was dancing last night as Tim Wakefield was able to hold off the Rockies in a tight ballgame last night. Todd Helton came to Boston, a place where he thought he might play this season and was the only member of the Rox who had faced Wake. All told, the Sox offense scored one more run than the Rox did and they won 2-1. Let’s take a look at what the Boston area and Denver media is writing about in today’s papers.
