New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox, 4/12/18: Yankees Go For Series Win

David Price: Exits after just one inning

David Price: Exits after just one inning

While he was running to second he slid spikes up and caught the leg of Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt.

Kelly retaliated in the top of the seventh by throwing a 97.7 miles per hour fastball into Austin's rib cage. Austin has been suspended five games for charging the mound and fighting.

Red Sox pitcher David Price was blown up against the Yankees on Wednesday and left the game after only 1 inning of work due to "numbness in hand".

The Yankees and Red Sox play their series finale Thursday night, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone believes the theatrics will be behind everyone.

Sure, Boston's hot start has been enjoyable, but the team's 9-1 run against the likes of Tampa Bay and Miami felt more like an extension of spring training than games that truly mattered. Instead, the reliever landed a couple of punches, and when Austin threw a punch at Kelly, it instead connected with Boston third base coach Carlos Febles.

The brawl in Boston was the second big fight of the day in baseball.

New York's 10-7 victory against Boston would usually provide the headlines in normal circumstances, but in the seventh inning of the Major League Baseball clash all hell broke loose. When that happened both teams said goodbye to the hated rivalry and there was relative peace. Not that I condone brawling in baseball, but there is something about the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry that is special. Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin and reliever Tommy Kahnle were also tossed.

NY and Boston have a history of furious fights.

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

Price, who gave up four runs in the inning, believes he avoided serious injury. Stanton had three hits.

Sanchez drove in four runs and Stanton had three hits and three RBIs. But after he dealt with an elbow strain that interrupted his 2017 season, the Sox have to take extra caution. The Sox bullpen would once again falter allowing six more runs through the final eight innings.
