AMAZIN'........In Every Way
***COCO DAZZLES WITH TREMENDOUS CATCH***
The Red Sox did everything right last night, Connecticut Day at Fenway Park. They bunted, they fielded, they caught the ball, and they hit. And Curt Schilling, facing fellow 200 game winner Tom Glavine, was just fine. He won his 10th game of the season, going 7 innings, allowing 2 runs. Timlin and Paps finished up, with Paps gaining his 24th save. The Red Sox tied the all-time major league mark for consecutive errorless games, a mark that can be broken tonight in the Sunshine State. Oh what a night. And one other thing. We wore down Tom Glavine, making him throw so many pitches that he was washed up and wasted, ready for the shower, after 5. Hey Tom, the hot water's on us!
Some Mets-Sox stats, with the Red Sox numbers first. Runs, 23-8. Hits,32-20. Batting avg.,.333-.206, and starters ERA, 2.75-11.68. (Htfd. Courant). ANNIHILATION. Pure and simple. And a dozen it is.
