Rockies Hope To Win At Home

By  | 

The Colorado Rockies will be looking for their first win in game 3 of the World Series Saturday night.

The Boston Red Sox are showing Colorado they can win big, and they can win small.

The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the World Series by nipping the Rockies 2-1 in a tense pitchers' duel that was a sharp contrast to Boston's 13-1 opening-game win.

40-year-old Red Sox right-hander Curt Schilling gave up a lone run in the first inning but settled down to pitch five-and-a-third strong innings. He allowed one run on four hits to improve his career postseason record to 11-and-2.

Hideki Okajima was stunning in relief. He got out of a two-on, one-out jam in the sixth inning and retired all seven batters he faced, striking out four.

Jonathan Papelbon got the final four outs for the save.

The series now moves to Denver for Game 3 Saturday night.
