Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell experienced an incredible father-son moment Saturday afternoon.
With Boston leading Cincinnati 5-0 heading into the ninth inning, Reds manager turned to Farrell’s son, Luke, to pitch the final frame. Luke Farrell allowed two walks in his brief appearance, but also struck out a batter in a scoreless inning.
After the game, John Farrell labeled watching his son pitch against the Red Sox as “surreal,” and stressed just how proud he is of the 26-year-old right-hander.
