I was hoping I would be able to catch Erik Bedard's Red Sox debut at Fenway against the Indians on Thursday night on TV, but I had Brooklyn Cyclones tickets and went to that game.
Sounds like Bedard was decent but not great. Five innings and allowed three runs, struck out five and walked none. Franklin Morales got torched in the sixth, giving up a bomb to Carlos Santana.
I followed the game on my cell at MCU Park. The news started out good with the Sox getting two in the first, but the Indians matched it in the second. It was all downhill after that.
At MCU, I had to deal with some fat dimwit one section over chanting "Let's Go Cyclops" all night long. It wasn't funny the first time, and it sure wasn't funny the hundredth. He looked like a Cyclones fan, but who knows.
The Cyclones fared no better, losing to Williamsport, 5-1.
And for the Red Sox, New York comes to town for three tied with them at 68-42.
Now it only looks like which team will win the AL East and which will win the Wild Card. Stay tuned.
