Red Sox hope Schilling doesn�t have to pitch again
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Red Sox will try to get Curt Schilling ready for another World Series start. They certainly hope they don�t need to use him.

Pitching again with his damaged ankle tendon stitched down, Schilling led Boston to a 6-to-2 victory over St. Louis Sunday night.

Schilling limped through the clubhouse Monday with a red and swollen ankles. Marks from the sutures were visible, but the pitcher said he was fine.

Team physician Bill Morgan tells The Associated Press that the unprecedented procedure might be too damaging to keep repeating.

Morgan says Schilling could be held to only Sunday�s game against St. Louis because of the surgical procedure to stitch together his injured right ankle.

Morgan says the team might have to pull the plug on the experiment after Schilling experienced significant discomfort before Sunday�s start.
