The PawSox were on the road in Columbus, former AAA home of the Yankees, but most of the 7,100 fans were cheering loudly for Schilling.
This is Red Sox Nation. That's no surprise. They are almost like ants. You always feel like you are at home. There are going to be fans in every city that are going to be loud enough to make you feel like you are in Boston.Schilling threw 21 first-pitch strikes to the 24 batters he faced and had only one three-ball count (to the leadoff man in the 5th). Of his 77 pitches, 60 were strikes.
