The debate-night sensation has a Red Sox fan.

Another "win" for Ken Bone? A pair of Red Sox playoff tickets.

After asking a question during Sunday night's second presidential debate, the Missouri resident became an instant internet sensation and was declared the true "winner" of the Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton showdown by social media.

On Monday, Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly took to Twitter to offer Bone a pair of tickets to Monday night's Game 3 showdown between Boston and Cleveland, using the hashtag #KenBoneismyhomie — if he can get to Fenway Park in time.

The Red Sox currently trail the Indians 0-2 in the series.

Bone, an undecided voter participating in the town hall event, asked Trump and Clinton about the country's energy needs during the contentious and particularly nasty 90-minute debate. Sporting a mustache and wearing a vibrant red sweater, his look and substantial question became the perfect combination for viewers reacting on social media. Within minutes, his name was trending on Twitter worldwide.

A sought-after Bone did rounds of interviews Monday morning, where he revealed that his now-famous red sweater was a "backup" choice and mused about his newfound fame.

"I went last night from having seven Twitter followers, two of which were my grandmother because she had to remake her account when she forgot her password, to ... several hundred," he said of his account, @kenbone18.

Bone also is set to appear on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! — which tapes earlier in the afternoon — via the Wall of America live broadcast.
