Erik Bedard: “After six that was it.”

Erik Bedard told pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre he was tired after six innings, which prompted his replacement by Miguel Batista, who gave up a two-run homer in the seventh.
“He said he was running on empty,” McLaren said. “He told Mel. He’s usually a 100-pitch pitcher. That’s usually what he throws.”
Bedard left after throwing 99 pitches in Boston and Sean Green came on to relieve him, giving up the game-deciding home run in a 2-1 game.
Bedard allowed a base runner in every inning he pitched on Saturday and he said that eventually caught up to him in terms of his effort.
“Every inning somebody was on,” Bedard said. “So it’s a harder inning every time I was going out there. After six that was it.”
