'Better Call Saul' sparks a minor league baseball Twitter fight

Get ready for five rounds of Twitter boxing between the Albuquerque Isotopes and Omaha Storm Chasers!

In the pilot episode of Better Call Saul, the lead character is forced to leave Albuquerque, N.M. -- where the show is set -- finding himself in Omaha, Neb. managing a Cinnabon.

No big deal right? It really wasn't, until two minor league baseball teams started trading jabs on Twitter.

The Omaha Storm Chasers came flying out of their corner with flurry from the opening bell, and they take Round 1!

After some help from the corner, the Albuquerque Isotopes come back strong in Round 2.

Round 3 was close, but we'll give it to the Chasers.

Star power in the crowd supporting the Isotopes, but will that help in the ring? Round 4 is a draw.


The Isotopes were clearly wounded in Round 4, but credit to them for taking their standing eight count and finishing the fight with a solid jab in Round 5.

Thanks to a fourth-round knockdown, the judges have this fight to the Omaha Storm Chasers. it was close though, there should be plenty of interest in a rematch.

The Isotopes face the Chasers for the first time this season May 29. Could this bad social media blood spill onto the field? Will Bryan Cranston show up to defend the honor of the Isotopes? Stay tuned!
