Schill getting looked at
As was freely suspected Monday night, physical woes seem to be a culprit to Curt Schilling’s sharp decline in his last two starts. The big righty is back home in Boston getting checked out by the team doctors.
You don’t all of a sudden go from a 92-mph fastball to 85 with no reason. Perhaps it’s just tendinitis or some kind of fatigue. Perhaps there will be an update later tonight.
No Lugo tonight. He’s 0-fer in his career against Hudson. At this hour, the move looks pretty solid as Cora — shocker — has come up big a couple of times tonight. Beckett is back in form. Only rain could stop him tonight. Play resumes at 10:25.
Ortiz put one out to the opposite field. Is it me, or does he not go Oppo as much as he did when he got here in 2003 and 2004. Spray chart anyone?
