Time Wakefield (5-8, 3.85 ERA) Brian Moehler (5-6, 6.55 ERA)

 

Moehler set to face Wakefield

Boston (48-29) at Florida (35-41)

 

Knuckleballers can be a nightmare for any batter, but for a young team going up against Tim Wakefield, one of the best when he's on, it can be the kind of stuff Stephen King novels are made of.

 

The Marlins will face that formidable task on Saturday when they take the plate against Wakefield, who will be one of the first knuckleballers any of the young Fish have faced.

 

"Knuckleballers are tough," Dan Uggla said. "I've faced a couple. You never know which way it's going to go."

 

Manager Joe Girardi doesn't want his batters to make any big changes, but said that you have to make some adjustments facing someone with nasty stuff like Wakefield.

 

"Wakefield can throw you in a funk for a while," Girardi said. "I think you've got to think about taking him the opposite way, and you've got to lift his ball up, that's the advice I'd give."

 

Going up against Wakefield on the mound will be Brian Moehler, who struggled in his last start -- a four-inning performance against the Yankees.

 

Pitching matchup

 

RHP Tim Wakefield (5-8, 3.86 ERA)

Wakefield got a no-decision in his last start against the Phillies, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

 

RHP Brian Moehler (5-6, 6.55 ERA)

Moehler had one of his poorest starts of the season in his last outing against the Yankees, allowing three runs in the first and five overall in a four-inning appearance.

 

Player to watch

Mark Loretta enters Saturday's game riding a 13-game hitting streak, the longest currently in baseball, with a .451 average over that span.
