As soon as he watched his last pitch blaze by the bat of Jeff Conine, Boston Red Sox starter Curt Schilling emphatically pumped his fist, smacked his glove and walked briskly to the dugout, a good day's work preserved.

In a game in which the Orioles got precious few scoring chances, their final one was thwarted when Schilling reached back and threw his hardest pitch of the day, a 96-mph fastball that Conine couldn't catch up to.
