On September 13, 2011 — It took him eight tries since he recorded his last win on July 24th, but 45-year-old Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, the major leagues’ active win leader, finally records victory number 200. He pitches 6 innings and leaves with a 6 – 5 lead over the Blue Jays, then his teammates get to work padding that cushion, as the game ends 18 – 6. In the 9th inning, P Junichi Tazawa makes his return to the majors two years after an injury interrupted a promising major league debut.
