Schilling pitched a fantastic game. Basically 2 pitches away from a perfect game (no thanks to the error let off by Lugo). With 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth, he let off a hit that took away the elusive no hitter. Got the next batter to end the game.
Yankee fanjoe walked by a few minutes ago and said Schill choked. Choked? The guy pitched a complete game allowing 1 hit to win the game 1-0. Not many pitchers can do that, especially those in their 40’s. The hatred Yankee fans have towards Schilling is so hilarious. Even when he does a phenomenal job, they find a sliver of a mistake. Schilling has been a Yankee killer for years now, starting with 2001, continuing in 2004, and probably will do so until he retires from the game.
I don’t go around blabbing my mouth every time the Sox hand Rivera a blown save. A win is a win, no matter how you get it, and yesterday was spectacular on Curt’s part.
Here’s hoping Curt wins another WS Ring with the Red Sox!
