Extra Bases

Walking along

Just what Tim Wakefield didn’t want to have happen.

Wakefield has battled high walk numbers in both of his previous two starts against the Yankees — 11 walks over 10 1/3 innings — and that seems to be following him in his third start against New York. Wakefield walked three straight batters, including walking in a run, in addition to the two-run homer he gave up to Robinson Cano.

3-0, Yankees.
