Breaking news: Curt Schilling flirts with no-hitter

The Boston Red Sox, Curt Schilling, flirted with history but came up short in the ninth with two outs before giving up a hard hit single to the Oakland A's leftfielder, Shannon Stewart. Schilling lost a perfect game back in the fifth inning, when Julio Lugo botched a lazy ground ball from Dan Johnson. So Schilling failed to get what would've been his first career no-hitter, but in hindsight the Red Sox did win the game, 1-0.

Another side note on Schilling's day to show how dominating he was, he pitched a complete game, one hitter and only had to throw 100 pitches, very impressive.
