From MLB.Com Scouting Report

Red Sox: Even after a shaky seventh inning in his last start, Schilling has a nice roll going. Last Sunday's 4-3 victory at Minnesota was Schilling's fifth quality start in six outings since his Opening Day loss to Kansas City. Schilling had a shutout working Sunday until the Twins scored three times in the seventh. Because Manager Terry Francona chose not to skip anyone because of an off-day, Schilling will have an extra day's rest going into this start. Schilling beat the Orioles three times in three starts last year, then won again, 6-1, with seven strong innings on April 25.

Orioles: Trachsel has been the resident hard-luck starter in Baltimore. He's pitched at least six innings with three earned runs or less four different times, but has three no-decisions and a loss in those games. The veteran has gone three starts since his last victory, but he's pitched into the sixth inning in six of his seven starts.

No stats today, just the following thoughts:
  • The win last night by Baltimore means the Sox are 6 and 7 vs losing teams.
  • Curt Schilling is 3 and 0 after losses.
  • The Sox are 2 and 3 on Saturdays press pass can be found here.
