One Out,,, Two Outs... and its a One Hitter
Its always so easy to play Monday morning Quarterback...
In the ninth, with two outs, and 1 out away from a no hitter,
Schilling shook off Varitek's call for a slider,
Threw a mean 95 MPH fastball,
And Shannon Stewart smacked it past Alex Cora for a basehit.
So much for the no hitter. In the end, the Red Sox win, 1-0, avoiding a sweep by the Oakland A's.
There's lots of speculation today, that if Schill had thrown the slider, maybe, just maybe he would have gotten his first no hitter in his career. Instead, he settles for his 3rd one hitter.
What a great outing by Curt and the boys, who manage to stop the bleeding once again.
