strandedx02 Posted July 5, 2005 Share Posted July 5, 2005 So I went up to Pawtucket today to watch Schilling make his second and final (if the reports are to be believed) rehab start and it was very hit or miss. He made some excellent pitches, striking out 8 batters, and got his fastball up to 96 in his 5th and final inning of work (most of the fastballs he threw were 91-93 if the stadium gun is to be believed). However, he also gave up 8 hits and 5 runs. 3 of the runs came on a bizarre 2-error play in the 2nd--with 2 on a guy doubled to right and the relay kicked off the catcher, then Schilling threw it away after backing the play up. Most of the hits he gave up were hit extremely hard, down the right field line, hard double to center, singles back up the middle, homer to former Expo (among other things) Wilton Guerrero that landed literally 3 feet from where I was standing, off the hand of the guy next to me and in front of a ducking girl who didn't know where the ball was. I haven't heard anything about him extending his rehab schedule and usually pitchers don't care too much about how they perform in these games but it was interesting to see, packed house.
