Schilling gets start against Braves

Jun 18, 2007 - 1:10 PM Boston (44-24) at Atlanta (37-33) 7:05 pm EDT

ATLANTA (Ticker) - Curt Schilling takes the mound as the Boston Red Sox hope to win their fourth straight game when they face the Atlanta Braves in the opener of a three-game interleague series on Monday.

Schilling (6-3, 3.80 ERA) will look to rebound from his worst start since the 7-1 opening day loss to the Kansas City Royals.

The 40-year-old Schilling pitched five innings, surrendering six runs and nine hits with five strikeouts in a 12-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.

The Braves counter with Chuck James (5-6, 4.16), who has posted an 0-2 record with a 5.19 ERA in his three starts this month.

James pitched 4 1/3 innings and gave up six runs and nine hits in a 6-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

Boston took two from Atlanta earlier this season in a three-game series at Fenway Park from May 18-20.
