Schilling expects pitching-dominated series

October, 3, 2013

Our Baseball Tonight crew -- Curt Schilling, John Kruk and Barry Larkin – look ahead to the ALDS between the Red Sox and Rays, which kicks off Friday afternoon at Fenway Park.

What does Schilling expect from the series? In a word, “Pitching.”

“A five-game series, I expect solid pitching on both sides,” says Schilling in the video above. “Look at the starting pitchers’ ERA [3.44 ERA for Rays and 3.17 ERA for Red Sox]. Not surprising and I think it’ll be lower in this series.

“I believe both of these offenses can be game-planned and pitched to. And you clearly have two rotations and two bullpens that can execute game plans.”
