One delivered a heroic performance on an injured ankle in a clutch playoff game to help his team defeat it’s biggest rival. The other cut his finger. The circumstances were different, but the images were similar for Curt Schilling and Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish, who put his own twist on Schilling’s “Bloody Sock” Wednesday with the “Bloody Belt.” In the seventh inning of his outing against the Seattle Mariners, Darvish re-opened a cut on his index finger and tried to stop the bleeding by wiping the blood all over the right belt loop of his clean white pants. The 27-year-old ace’s plan worked, but not before leaving a noticeable blood stain that calls to mind memories of Schilling’s bloody sock nearly ten years ago. Prior to Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS against the New York Yankees, Schilling had sutures stitched to his right ankle in an attempt to subdue a nagging injury. Despite the sutures rupturing midway through the game, the gritty right-hander lasted seven innings and allowed just one run in a 4-2 Red Sox win. Relive the classic game in the video below.
