Game 18: April 23, 2005
Red Sox (10-8), 5
Devil Rays (8-10), 6
L: Curt Schilling (1-2)
W: Casey Fossum (1-1)
H: Seth McClung (1)
H: Trever Miller (3)
S: Lance Carter (1)

This is the kind of game I hate to recap, part two.

David Ortiz hit 2 massive home runs, one in the 3rd (432 feet) and another in the 5th (455 feet). The second one inspired this classic Orsillo/Remy exchange, paraphrased since I didn’t record it:

Remy: Must be nice hitting one like that and knowing it’s a home run.
Orsillo: Are you saying that when you hit your 7 career home runs you were never sure right away?
Remy: Nope, I was sprinting all the way around second.
Orsillo: So, you didn’t stand and watch them leave the park?
Remy: I used to watch my bunts.

Curt Schilling isn’t back to regular season form yet, but we did see flashes of his former self. He pitched 7 innings and 9 hits, 6 runs (all earned), struck out 5, and ended with an ERA of 7.13. Some good news is that he didn’t allow any base on balls.

Well, at least the Celtics won 82-102.

Let’s hope the baseball club doesn’t get swept tomorrow.
