BOSTON -- Tim Wakefield's story is a mystery in spikes. Not a whodunit, but a howdunit.How did Wakefield, a 29-year-old knuckleballer, go from being one of baseball's worst pitchers in 1994 to one of its best in 1995? How did he go, in less than four months, from being released in Pittsburgh to being the ace in Boston and the favorite to win the American League's Cy Young Award?How could Wakefield, who takes a 13-1 record into his start today against the Orioles at Fenway Park, travel directly from the lowest low -- he was 5-15 in Triple-A last year -- to the highest high without stopping for even a little mediocrity in between?

ATLANTA -- Mother, teach your son to throw the knuckleball and maybe he will become an instant baseball hero like Tim Wakefield of the Pittsburgh Pirates.Knuckleballers are a rare breed, soft-tossers who throw without much exertion. They often pitch in the big leagues into their mid-40s, sometimes beyond. Hoyt Wilhelm, a Hall of Fame knuckleball artist of the previous generation, appeared in more than 1,000 games. He retired at the age of 49. His legs gave out, not his arm.Baseball's latest -- and remarkably successful -- knuckleballer is Wakefield, a rookie right-hander out of Melbourne, Fla. Wakefield, 26, goes against Tom Glavine, Atlanta's 20-game winner, tonight in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.

PITTSBURGH -- It's funny, but Tim Wakefield didn't look as though he was carrying the hopes and dreams of a city and its baseball team Friday night at Three Rivers Stadium.Yet, with the Pittsburgh Pirates trailing the Atlanta Braves, 2-0, in the National League Championship Series, and facing a hole from which no team has emerged, Wakefield was the proverbial Atlas for the Pirates, beating the Braves, 3-2.The 26-year-old knuckleballer, barely two years removed from a going-nowhere-fast career as a first baseman, kept Atlanta hitters, who had battered Pittsburgh pitching in the first two NLCS games, off stride.

Home is where the wins have come for the Blast this season, and last night was no different. For the seventh time in nine games at 1st Mariner Arena, the Blast prevailed, turning back its old rival, the Milwaukee Wave, 12-7, for its third straight victory to remain in fifth place in the Major Indoor Soccer League. Now 9-7 after falling below .500 two weeks ago, the Blast was boosted by defender P.J. Wakefield's seven-point night. A solid defensive effort against the MISL's leading scorer, Greg Howes, was another key factor.
