  • Rockies’ offense struggling vs. Red Sox

    Curt Schilling came to Boston four years ago with the lone goal of helping the Red Sox win the World Series. He might do it twice. In what could be his final start in a Boston uniform, Schilling held the Rockies to one run over 5 1-3 innings in Game 2 of the Series on…
