Attaboy Curt!

By the way, congrats to Boston's Curt Schilling for doing something (last night) that Randy Johnson (and every other Yankees pitcher in the last 100 years) has never done. From the ATM Reports Blog:

Schilling tied the AL record by allowing 10 extra base hits in a game, tying the mark set by Dale Gear (1901) and Luis Tiant (1969).

That's quite an achievement. Couldn't happen to a better guy.

That's pretty unbelievable.

Liriano has given up 26 XBH all season, Schilling gave up just under half that in 1 game.

I was kinda surprised that the 10 extra base hits (plus the single) only amounted to 5 runs. Not that I'm complaining - five was enough.
