ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Curt Schilling has pitched a lot better in big games than he did Tuesday.
|Game 1 Breakdown|
Manny Ramirez. He doubled in the first inning and scored the first run of the game a batter later on an RBI single by David Ortiz. Ramirez also added a three-run homer in the fourth inning.
Vladimir Guerrero went 0-for-5 in his first playoff game, and made the final out. ... Erstad and Glaus had three hits each. ... Longtime Angels standout Tim Salmon threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Salmon hasn't played since Aug. 23 because of injuries to his left knee and left shoulder ... Francona said he's not concerned about Martinez, who allowed 30 hits and 21 runs in 23 1/3 innings in his last four starts. "I'll bet you every manager wishes they could start him in Game 2," Francona said. ... Martinez didn't appear in the interview room before the game as the following day's starting pitchers usually do, and didn't join his teammates on the field for the pre-game introductions.
