Schilling claims fifth victory

May 6, 2006


— Curt Schilling moved into a tie for the AL lead with his fifth win, and David Ortiz put Boston ahead with a three-run double, leading the Red Sox over the Baltimore Orioles, 6-3, Friday night.

Schilling (5-1) rebounded from his only loss of the season, allowing three runs and eight hits in seven innings. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter. Schilling didn't win his fifth game until Aug. 19 last season, when he was slowed by an injured right ankle. Ortiz, hitless in his previous 11 at-bats, cleared the bases in the four-run sixth when Boston took a 6-3 lead.
