BOSTON (CBS) – John Farrell will be watching a baseball game on Saturday. It just won’t be his own team’s.

The Red Sox manager, with permission from GM Dave Dombrowski, missed Boston’s 7-1 win over the Blue Jays so he could fly to Kansas City where his son Luke made his major league debut.

Luke Farrell, a right-handed pitcher drafted in 2013, pitched the first two innings of the first game of a doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins.

The younger Farrell gave up five runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Naturally, the older Farrell was a bit nervous. Farrell said after Friday’s game, “I don’t know that I’ll be sitting. I’ll be pacing the ballpark for sure.”

Bench coach Gary Disarcina managed the Sox as they saw pitcher Chris Sale dominate in the Red Sox’s 7-1 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

    Royals’ Luke Farrell: Struggles in spot start Saturday
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Farrell (0-1) allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Twins.
    Farrell was added to the Royals roster to start game one of a doubleheader to make his big league debut, and he did very little to provide help to the bullpen by failing to finish the third inning. He’s not currently expected to make another start for the team in the near future.

    Funny how he got the loss, when they won the game. Cbssports is always making stupid errors like this. Unreal.
