Curt Schilling finally garnered his nineteenth win after two one-run losses with seven shutout innings in the Diamondbacks 9-2 win over the Marlins. Schilling now has as many wins as walks on the year. To put that in perspective, tonight's Cincinnati-San Diego game, admittedly not a pitcher's duel at 9-7, featured 17 walks.
My 'At's off to Aaron (As Andy Capp Would Say)
Aaron Myette finally won a game in his fifth try for Texas. He went the minimum five innings, allowing two runs, both unearned, two hit batsmen, and four walks. In the process, he lowered his ERA by two runs to 9.76. Unfortunately, though, he will no longer be able to draw comparisons between himself and Curt Schilling. Both had entered tonight's games with 19 walks, Myette's in 22.2 innings and Schilling's in 185.1 innings.
