Schilling and bullpen doom Rockies

BOSTON (AP) _ He's nearly 41 and doesn't throw as hard as he
once did, but when it comes to postseason pitching, Curt Schilling
is still money in the bank for the Boston Red Sox.
Schilling is 3-and-0 in this postseason after raising his
lifetime postseason mark to 11-and-2 with yet another stellar
effort in October.
Schilling and two relievers combined on a five-hitter as Boston
nipped Colorado 2-1 to take a 2-0 World Series lead. Schilling
pitched five and a-third innings before giving way to another
outstanding performance by the Red Sox bullpen.
Hideki Okajimi relieved Schilling with two on in the fifth. He
retired all seven batters he faced, striking out four. Jonathan
Papelbon got the final four outs for the save.
Schilling called the Red Sox bullpen's performance ``a
dominating effort.''
This could have been Schilling's final performance at Fenway
Park as he is a free agent after the season. He left to a standing
ovation, a moment Schilling says is ``another memory I'll never
forget.''
