Episode Summary

EDIT
October 19, 2004: 2004 ALCS, Game 6: Boston Red Sox 4 at New York Yankees 2, F -- They seemed to be clinging onto fading hopes over the weekend at Fenway Park, as the board on the door exiting the Red Sox clubhouse offered a simple message. "We can change history. Believe it!" Simply by riding Curt Schilling's gritty performance and Mark Bellhorn's three-run homer to a 4-2 victory over the Yankees, the Red Sox were in a class all by themselves in the annals of Major League Baseball history. Of the 25 previous teams that trailed a best-of-seven postseason series 3-0, none had ever forced a Game 7. Until now. The Red Sox hopped on Schilling's back, and somehow the big righty's ailing right ankle -- which would be operated on as soon as this season ended -- didn't buckle. "I can't explain to you what a feeling it was to be out there and to feel what I felt," said Schilling, who badly wanted to avenge his subpar loss in Game 1, when the ankle was a hindrance and he gave up six hits and six runs over three innings. Schilling gave the Sox seven clutch innings (four hits, one run, no walks and four strikeouts) on a night the bullpen was positively spent. Closer Keith Foulke, who has been nothing short of heroic in this series, had Sox fans biting their nails by walking Hideki Matsui to open the ninth. He walked Ruben Sierra with two outs, giving Tony Clark a chance to give the Yankees the pennant with one swing. But Foulke, who had thrown 72 pitches in Games 4 and 5, found a way and got Clark swinging on a 3-2 pitch.moreless
