Red Sox
June 7 -- Red Sox 1, Athletics 0 Curt Schilling was nearly unhittable. With two outs in the ninth inning against Oakland -- after a demoralizing loss to the Yankees, a cross-country trip, and two more losses to the A's -- Schilling brought the crowd at McAfee Coliseum to its feet as he was one out away from throwing his first career no-hitter. Shannon Stewart broke it up with a single into right field on Schilling's 98th pitch -- he threw a fastball; Jason Varitek wanted a slider.
