Boston Vs Toronto Game 9

9th game against Toronto tonight. So far the Sox are 3 and 5 against the Jay' with only 10 games left to play against them. ESPN's preview is here.


Scouting Report:
On Sunday, Schilling narrowly missed becoming just the third pitcher in Boston history to win five games in April. He allowed three runs in six innings while striking out nine, but failed to get the run support he needed in a 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay. Schilling is 3-4 with a 3.63 ERA in eight career starts against the Orioles.

Schilling has 196 career wins, with number 1 coming as an Oriole. There are some things to remember going into this game. 1) the birds are 34 and 25 at Fenway since 1999, 2) Lopez is 10 and 6 against the Sox (42 and 40 against everybody else), 3) the pain in the butt for the last 2 years Javy Lopez is on the DL and won't be playing, and last but definitely not least Schilling loves pitching at Fenway.

The bats will need to come alive tonight to take the pressure off of the Big Schill.
