As We Suspected . . .

. . .the reports that Matthew Beaudoin's death was caused by an argument over baseball were wrong:
Ivonne Hernandez, 43, is accused of gunning her car into Matthew Beaudoin, 29, and his friends after what witnesses described as a barroom argument about the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry spilled outside Slade’s Food & Spirits in Nashua, N.H., early Friday.

But Beaudoin’s devastated girlfriend Donna Dionne, 29, told the Herald yesterday, “Matt was sticking up for a friend who had been punched by this woman. It had nothing to do with a big baseball rivalry. These stories are wrong.”

Dionne said Beaudoin’s friends, who witnessed the horror, told her the confrontation was sparked when Hernandez punched a female pal of Beaudoin’s outside the bar.
The story goes on to note that there were some "Yankees suck!" taunts thrown Hernandez's way just before she plowed into Beaudoin, but that seems pretty incidental to it all.
