BOSTON -- Boston Red Sox ace Curt Schilling threw on the side Sunday, prompting an upbeat report from general manager Theo Epstein before Game 4 of
the AL Championship Series against the New York Yankees.
"It's going fairly well right now for Curt, considering the circumstances," Epstein said. "He looked good, considering the circumstances."
Schilling led the major leagues with 21 wins during the regular season but allowed six runs in three innings when Boston lost the opener 10-7. It was
his poorest postseason performance since 1993.
He had been scheduled to start Game 5. Epstein said manager Terry Francona would announce the rotation for future games as they are needed.
New York led the best-of-7 series 3-0 going into Sunday night.
