Yankees knock off Red Sox as benches clear twice

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora runs onto the field as he is introduced during ceremonies before the home against the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park on Thursday

The two teams will meet again for a series in NY next month, though it will be September when this rivalry really heats up. "There was never any thought in my mind that past year kind of reoccured or any of that".

The suspensions and fines should eliminate any need for retaliation, the two teams insisted before playing their series finale at Fenway Park.

The Yankees and Gary Sanchez jumped on the Red Sox early putting four runs on the board in the first and knocking David Price out of the game.

Well, now it is back.

The right-hander, who had allowed no more than two earned runs in any of his previous road starts, had a hard time with his command on a damp night. Among current Yankees, Brett Gardner has had the most success in his career against Porcello, going 14-46 with two homers and a.304 average.

It started in the third inning with the Yanks ahead 5-1.

"The only thing I would had done different than Joe Kelly tonight, is I would've hit Tyler Austin at his previous at bat".

Cool, calm weather expected for first half of week — FIRST ALERT FORECAST
The strongest winds will be in the northeast portion of the state, where High Wind Warnings are in effect from 9 a.m.to 10 p.m. But, I think the main severe threat will come during the afternoon - especially between noon and 6 p.m.

Austin slid spikes-first into shortstop Brock Holt at second base in the third inning. Peace was restored until a few innings later when Sox reliever Joe Kelly put one between Austin's shoulder blades. The benches cleared, but no punches were thrown. But this was the beginning of what would later come. With all apologies to those who run Major League Baseball, no one cares about the lowly Rays and Marlins. Austin was given five games for charging the mound.

It should be enough that the Red Sox no longer fear the Yankees.

Red Sox pitcher Kelly was hit with a six-game ban for throwing at Austin intentionally, while the Yankees outfielder got five games for subsequently rushing the mound.

The second inning, as the Red Sox batted around and plated four runs to take a 4-0 lead. Finally, Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin would receive a fine as well.

With two series over the final couple weeks, including a three-game set to close out the season in Boston, the battle for the AL East will likely go down to the wire. His 15 hits entering Thursday trailed only Mookie Betts, and Ramirez had driven in at least one run in six of his last seven games.

With that being said, the suspensions following this brawl will probably be rather similar. The Red Sox think it might, that the Yankees may retaliate for Austin, who didn't think he did anything wrong on the slide.

Now, it's only been 12 games of 162 (7.4 percent of the season), but a 9-3 start gives them a 2 1/2-game lead over the Brewers and three over the Cubs.
