Kelly, Austin suspended for Yankees-Red Sox brawl

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

The New York Yankees will play their divisional rival Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

The atmosphere at the ballpark was already heightened after Wednesday's events, as the benches cleared twice in New York's 10-7 win.

Gregorius seemed to enjoy hitting righties on the road previous year. That said, there are 16 meetings left between the two teams, and baseball players have long memories. Boston pitcher David Price said: "Red Sox-Yankees".

Well, now it is back.

The seeming disinterest bled over to the fan bases as well as there wasn't much more on the line than any other given game.

So hold on to your hat's, and make sure your ready to duck, cause the rivalry is back baby.and it's awesome.

Well, Tyler Austin did exactly that in the third inning.

Cora still believes that Austin's slide into Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt, which precipitated the brawl four innings later, was dirty. The benches cleared, words were exchanged, the tension was bubbling. But this was the beginning of what would later come. One night after Joe Kelly's fastball to Tyler Austin's shoulder blade had kicked off a brawl, both teams were on high alert, but no one viewed Sonny Gray's pitch as intentional; Ramirez was trying to swing at it when it hit him.

Austin and Kelly grappled to the ground, with Austin landing one clean shot against his opponent. The Red Sox are 9-2 SU and 4-6 ATS. Kelly was suspended for six games and Austin received a five-game penalty.

Lin is expected in the Red Sox starting lineup Friday.

Kelly, Austin, Boston manager Alex Cora and NY third-base coach Phil Nevin also were fined.

Nothing has been announced by the Major League Baseball yet on if anyone will be suspended or for how long, but suspensions seem inevitable. Last year Gary Sanchez was suspended four games for his role in the benches clearing brawl with the Tigers, and it was reduced to three on appeal. Martinez. Still, he was the winning pitcher at the end of the day, the beneficiary of the big bats igniting the offense: Judge was 2-4 with a walk, Giancarlo Stanton 2-5 with three RBIs and Sanchez was 3-5, with the two homers and a double.

"It shows that we've all got each other's back", Holt said.

"Afterward, Yanks Manager Aaron Boone said, via ESPN, 'It's probably over".

Pretty good! A steaming mad Austin shatters his bat to try and intimidate Kelly; Kelly mutters "come on!" before Austin charges him; Aaron Judge enters the fray to tower over everyone and pull Austin off of Kelly, whose jersey ended up ripped; Phil Nevin, missing his playing days, begins shouting toward the Red Sox dugout for some reason.
