Pitched for the Boston Red Sox against the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series. He pitched Game One, but a recurring ankle injury flared up and his pitching was ineffective; he was torched by the Yankees for six runs en route to a 10-7 Yankees win. The Red Sox lost the next two games, but in a dramatic 12-inning marathon rallied to win Game Four, then rallied to win Game Five in 14 innings; during this time team doctors devised a radical surgery procedure that repaired Schilling's ankle enough for him to wear a special cast to pitch Game Six. He pitched strongly and shut down the Yankees enough that despite bleeding through his cast he got the win as the Red Sox won Game Six 4-2, en route to a history-making 4-3 triumph over the Yankees for the American League pennant.
