Schilling ready to take the hill

In his third rehab start at Pawtucket, Curt Schilling pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing only four singles. He breezed through the entire start, exhibiting great control and needing only 77 pitches (60 of them strikes). Getting him back for August will be a huge boost for the team.

Julian Tavarez will make a spot start, filling in Kason Gabbard‘s slot in the rotation. Gabbard was traded to Texas yesterday as part of the Eric Gagne deal.

    curt:long time fan. i lived on cape cod from 2000-2004 even coined a slogan in 2004- in 2004 the curse will be no more.
    i live back in ohio now went to the 2006 red sox games in cleveland and froze my backside off but it was worth to see you and the team in the flesh.
    as a lifetime baseball fan, i played from age 12-35 when i blew out my right knee backing up first base from my catcher postion.
    i really thank for playing baseball the old fashioned way, the love of the game. i am a yankee hater so lets step it up and run away from them

    Schilling pitched 15 innings over three rehab starts, struck out 18 and allowed zero, count ’em, zero runs. I think he’s well rested and ready to lead us to the playoffs.
