***FINAL...A ONE HIT Complete Game For The Boston Red Sox Ace Curt Schilling!!!!!***
The Boston Red Sox are keeping intact their lack of lumber...so far. 1-0 SOX. And who knows what will happen. I DO know one thing.....we NEED this win. Stay tuned for either sadness (no no) or euphoria. A huge win it would be...the A's are being stymied by our ace, Mr. Schilling. And he's coming out for the 9th. I don't want to get ahead of myself, or ahead of time itself, so I will meekly blend into the background. For now....2 down in the bottom of the 7th....1-0 good guys. Our guys. Can we just have 7 clean, uncluttered and quick outs? I hope so. The team we love is SO in need of a win. And here we come, and ONLY ONE BATTER has reached base all afternoon against Schill as we leap into the 8th. And that runner was on base because of an error. I do not want to say anything to change the luck. So I won't.
Now everyone, let's wish Curt good luck. Faith, now more than ever. I didn't mention a CERTAIN something, nor will I! Here's a hint, through 7 plus, and more to come.............
Boston IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Curt Schilling 7.0 0 0 0 0 4 0 3.58
Oakland IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Joe Blanton 7.0 4 1 1 2 2 1 3.61
Holy moley, my goodness, I am riveted.......a few runs would be nice. Maybe I could stop pacing and cut out my unceasing and nervous mutterings that sound something like "GO SOX," hands running through my hair while my eyes glance towards the brilliant bold blue sky. But no such luck. And maybe that's OK!
And now, to the last half of the 8th. I will leave you now......but not for long.........
***UPDATE*** 2 outs in the 8th for the A's. 3 outs! Sweet revenge, or a Schill masterpiece? Or both????
HE HAS ALLOWED ONE BASERUNNER THROUGH 8 INNINGS, and that was because of an error. Schilling comes out for the 9th. It's his game, and our forever memories!
And the Sox win 1-0...a ONE HITTER FOR SCHILL! So close, but chalk up the win!!!!!!!!!!! May I say WOW!!! I just did!! That ONE base hit happened with 2 outs in the 9th. Great job Curt! I love our team!!!!!!!!! Boston Red Sox FOREVER! In MY world, and hopefully yours, too!
