Ever since he struggled on Opening Day, Curt Schilling has been pretty automatic. Schilling took the Angels to school, pitching 8 full innings, allowing 4 hits, a walk, no runs and striking out 4.
With a great performance by Schilling, only Brendan Donnelly got work in against his former team. Donnelly allowed just one hit.
Another 'smashing' effort by the Home Towne Team. Eric Hinske, who subbed for Kevin Youkilis at first base and in the two-hole, was fantastic. He went 2-for-3 with 3 runs and 2 walks. David Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a run, 4 RBI and a walk. Ortiz hit a home run in the 8th inning with two on.
No errors is good enough for me.
Winner: Curt Schilling
He was lights out. Now if we can only repeat this performance another 31 times.
Winner: Coco Crisp
Again? Ehh. Crisp was 0-for-3 with a walk, a strikeout and left three stranded.
