MLB Issues Suspensions, Fines In Wake Of Yankees-Red Sox Brawl

Say what you want about the slide which led to Austin getting drilled but Kelly started the fighting by throwing a 98 miles per hour fastball high and tight. All four players are now on the DL. Rick Porcello will enjoy an extra day of rest before making his next start on Wednesday against the Angels.

The right-hander was masterful in a 6-3 victory, taking a no-hitter into the seventh and improving to 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA.

"I had it as three or four rows in the seats", Stanton said.

Price is averaging 26.7 FanDuel points per game for the season. That's a decent cushion so early in the season.

The Red Sox and the Yankees have had one of the nastiest rivalries in all of sports.

Now one can argue that Austin didn't have it coming after sliding into second base spikes high trying to break up a double play. That wasn't the case in the seventh inning when Joe Kelly hit Austin with a 90 plus miles per hour fastball. Thereupon, hands were thrown. "You've always got to try, obviously, to protect your own, but you've got to be a pro, too".

Porcello pitched seven scoreless innings, Mookie Betts drove in two runs and the Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 6-3 on Thursday night.

"It's frustrating because he is really important for us and we know what he is capable of, " the manager said. As do, of course, the AL East implications that will be a subplot anytime these two teams get together in 2018.

Ramirez was hit in the wrist by a 94 miles per hour fastball from New York Yankees pitcher Sonny Gray in the first inning of Thursday's game between the teams.

Andrew Benintendi, Mitch Moreland and Eduardo Nunez had two hits apiece for the Red Sox, who prevailed on a night that featured heavy rain through the first five innings.

The Reds host the Cardinals on Thursday night, as noted above, and at this writing atmospheric conditions may be described as "conducive to power outputs".

Gray threw a pair of wild pitches in the second and second baseman Tyler Wade made an error on a throw to home plate as the Red Sox sent nine batters to the plate.
