Schilling lives for spotlight with season on the line
BOSTON -- The flash points for tonight's Game 6 of the American League Championship Series are plentiful. Cleveland manager Eric Wedge is angry with his team's offensive approach in Game 5's 7-1 loss to Josh Beckett and the Red Sox. Fausto Carmona, the Indians' 19-game winner who couldn't find the strike zone or the way out of the fifth inning in Game 2 at Fenway Park, is perhaps most intriguing of all, and his rise to the challenge of becoming a true October pitcher would do much to end the suspense of this series once and for all.
I'm scared to death to not do well [in Game 6], but I'm also very cognizant of the fact that fear is something that has always driven me, always pushed me.
