9.22: Peter Gammons tells WEEI that Craig Hansen doesn't have his slider after the long layoff (and would have needed it to get Gomes out last night), has a Dominican arm -- "so loose, quick," with two fastballs, but has let in 1.000 percent of inherited runners (1 of 1 in Portland), Timlin should be able to get four outs, and Wakefield should have been allowed to finish the eighth inning after getting the double play because he is the best clutch pitcher they have and only had thrown 92 pitches.
