Keidel: With All Due Respect, Red Sox Don't Face Same Pressure Yankees Do

That pitch appeared to be in retaliation for Austin's hard slide in the third inning when his lead foot clipped the foot of Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt during a force out. And I took exception.

It started when Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly nailed Yankees first baseman Tyler Austin with a 97 miles per hour fastball. Kelly chose to take it upon himself to give it back to Austin for the earlier events and he threw a 98 miles per hour fastball straight at Austin. Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge wrapped his arms around Kelly, while Judge's teammate Giancarlo Stanton pushed his way through the other players. Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames used both hands to shove Austin all the way across the infield toward the NY dugout.

Kelly, Austin, Boston manager Alex Cora and NY third-base coach Phil Nevin also were fined. It may not have even been the wildest brawl of the day, but it reignited the dormant rivalry. Colorado star Nolan Arenado charged the mound after being a pitch from San Diego's Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind him. Here's how to watch Thursday night's game between NY and Boston.

Thurman Munson collided with catcher Carlton Fisk in 1973 after Gene Michael missed a bunt attempt. Just a good old-fashioned Yankees-Red Sox brawl.

Sanchez, who entered with just two hits, had three by the fourth inning: a home run in the first, a double in the third and another home run in the fourth, his third of the season. Moreland will likely replace him in his first base spot if he stays there, and the Red Sox can use J.D. Martinez or rotate in other players at the DH spot.

Kelly, Austin, Boston manager Alex Cora and NY third base coach Phil Nevin also were fined. Austin's suspension might get knocked down to three or four games.

It was more than enough offense for Porcello (3-0), who returned to the mound after the rain subsided and put the Yankees down in order in the sixth. Yankees manager Aaron Boone could recall in vivid detail the rage he felt in the minor leagues when a fastball purposefully whistled over his head.

Red Sox committed no errors in their first 10 games, the franchise's longest streak to begin any season. Everyone knows that in a rivalry game the unwritten rules of baseball aren't in play. He played catch on flat ground Thursday and is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday when Boston opens a nine-game road trip at the Los Angeles Angels. Prior to Wednesday's loss, he had the Red Sox at 9-1, their best start in franchise history. "A couple of walks and a couple of bloop hits and the next thing you know, you can give up four runs pretty easily".
