Schilling's Postseason Dominance

From the blog of Peter Gammons (Insider required):
Check out these numbers from Bobby Tresca of Newton, Mass., heading into Curt Schilling's Game 3 start against the Angels: In his 15 postseason starts, Schilling is 8-2 with a 2.06 ERA, which is amazing. But if you look at his five no-decisions, it's even more impressive. 1. 1993 NLCS Game 1
He leaves after eight innings with a 3-2 lead, and Mitch Williams blows the save. 2. 1993 NLCS Game 5
He leaves after eight-plus innings with a 3-0 lead, and Williams blows the save. 3. 2001 World Series Game 4
He leaves after seven innings with 3-1 lead, and Byung-Hyun Kim blows the save. 4. 2001 World Series Game 7
He pitches 7 1/3 innings, allows two earned runs and gets a no-decision (one run was an Alfonso Soriano home run on a pitch that seemed a foot short of the plate). 5. 2002 NLCS Game 2
He pitches seven innings, allows one earned run and gets a no-decision.
