Cable was out for several hours, so I missed the first two innings (though I did watch the bonus disc from the mega-box set of the ALCS/WS games and discovered that I cannot hate Kevin Millar. His "Don't let us win tonight" monologue before ALCS 4 is one of the greatest quotes in Red Sox history.)
After only five pitches, Curt Schilling trailed 2-0. He battled into the seventh, but what looked like a fairly flat performance from the hitters (and questionable bullpen choices by Francona in the eighth) led to a defeat. Coupled with the Chokers' win in Tampa, the East lead is down to 1.5.
Wakefield / Kennedy at 7:00.
