A Note on the Permeable Membrane

[Wakefield] struck out Hideki Matsui and Nick Johnson to open the second inning. He got Giambi on a fly with two outs and a runner at third in the third inning. Giambi, serving as the designated hitter, returned to the dugout between his at-bats and watched Wakefield on television, waiting for some moments when the knuckleball might tumble ineffectively. It never happened. "None of his balls tumbled tonight," Giambi said. "They all knuckled."
