Porcello pitches Sox past Yankees in finale, 6-3

The Yankees And Red Sox Brawl Because That's How It Must Be

Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly beaned Austin during a plate appearance later in the game, causing both benches to clear and players to be taken to the ground.

Both Kelly and Austin are appealing their suspensions, so they are eligible to play the meantime.

The benches cleared earlier in the game after Austin's spikes hit Brock Holt's leg on a slide into second base.

With Austin at the plate, Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly hit him in the back with a 98 miles per hour fastball.

Nightengale wrote: "Yes, baby, the Red Sox-Yankee feud is alive and well, the greatest rivalry in all of American sports, where only these two teams can turn a largely dreary 3 hour, 59-minute game into an exhilarating joy ride that keeps you riveted to the action".

J.D. Martinez lifted Boston back into the game with a fifth inning grand slam off Masahiro Tanaka, but the Yankees already had eight runs at that point, and they scored two more the next inning. Three years later, Lou Piniella bowled into Fisk at the plate, and Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee separated a shoulder in the ensuing fighting. Here's a stroll down memory lane, and a look at three other classic Red Sox-Yankees melees.

Also fined for their roles in Wednesday's dust-up: Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin.

I know this isn't hockey where guys lawfully exchange punches on ice as a way to settle personal scores or perceived offenses by the opposing team, but putting a fastball in an opponents backside has been an acceptable part of the game for decades - I dare say for over a century. At least no one got hurt.

"Two competitive teams going at it and stuff happens", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.

Austin said after the game that he felt nothing was wrong with his slide.

"A lot of people get caught up in their emotions, whether it's the fans, the media, the players and I think they lose a sense of the game itself", Bradley Jr. said Thursday after batting practice. Unfortunately, Aaron Judge ended the no-hit bid with a leadoff double, followed up by an infield single by Stanton. Kelly waved Austin at him, and things quickly escalated. If you want an idea of just how different the 1970s were from the contemporary game, only Nettles and Lee were ejected from that contest.

Gary Sanchez led the Yanks with two home runs and four RBI, while Giancarlo Stanton added three hits and three RBI. Boone said Hicks may rejoin the Yankees on Thursday.

Thursday brings us an eight-game slate of Major League Baseball action, so let's jump right in. This time, he allowed just one run off three hits and six strikeouts in a 5-1 victory.

Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (2-0, 2.84 ERA) has won each of his two starts this season.
