Curt Schilling was not among those honored by the Red Sox before Game 2 of the World Series even though he played a leading role in their 2004 championship run.
It would be pressure enough, but the Dodgers opening game loss to the Red Sox eight-to-four means his team is relying on him to put in a stellar performance at Boston's Fenway Park to level up the series at one apiece.
In Game 1 the Dodgers made two mistakes in the first inning that led to a pair of Red Sox runs on the way to an 8-4 victory for the hosts.
The Red Sox wasted no time revving up the chilled Fenway faithful with Benintendi and J.D. Martinez connecting on run scoring singles to stake Boston to a 2-0 first inning lead. In a Facebook post after Game 2, Schilling disagreed.
The Red Sox honored Schilling prior to a game vs. the Braves on May 28, 2014, about two years before his exit from ESPN. They boosted that figure in Game 2, with all four runs scoring after two men were already down. "David was unbelievable, and then the bullpen did what they've been doing during October, and now we're up 2-0".
"We did not reach out to him", a team executive told the newspaper.
"Nope. No worries though, great to see @45PedroMartinez @davidortiz and @KMillar15 "The pimper (sic) of walks" though".

Though the Red Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Philadelphia Phillies have included Schilling in past ceremonies, Schilling's political views in a heated climate have hampered him in the past. "Oh and I get to keep my 3 rings and 3 trophies, so it's all good", he wrote.
And just like that, the World Series was two down, two to go for the Red Sox.
"I basically have never spoken to them since and never will speak to them again", he said. Today, tough one. They pitched well.
Though he was not invited Wednesday, Schilling did receive an invitation and attended the 10-year celebration for the 2007 World Series team last year.
Grant Schilling, who identified himself as liberal and said he doesn't agree with numerous things his father says, tweeted his disgust to the Red Sox for how they've treated his dad.
