Boston Sports 101 - Greatest Red Sox vs. Yankees Moments

  • Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the New York Yankees runs towards first after hitting a single during the fifth inning against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park

After struggling heavily through the first 11 games of the year the two sluggers combined for six hits and drove in seven of the team's ten runs.

Well, now it is back.

Kelly, 29, is in his fifth season with the Red Sox, after joining the team in the trade that sent John Lackey to St. Louis.

One encouraging sign at the plate: After a slow start, Andrew Benintendi had his second multi-hit game in a row.

An inning later, Gray gave up three hits, threw two wild pitches and walked two.

On Wednesday night, Yankees DH Tyler Austin came in to second base spikes high during a routine double-play attempt, slicing into shortstop Brock Holt.




Austin, who had earlier sparked a confrontation following a risky slide into second base, was issued with a five-game suspension following his wild reaction. "It was just one of those nights". But this was the beginning of what would later come.

Austin and Kelly grappled to the ground, with Austin landing one clean shot against his opponent.

Austin chose to slam his bat down and then charge the mound. "Carlos faced him a few times I guess in the A.L. East, so when he talks guys listen and that was the feedback".

Kelly has been handed a six game suspension while Austin has received a five game suspension, according to Major League Baseball's Chief Baseball Officer, Joe Torre. But Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel was summoned and quickly restored order, retiring Hicks on a groundout and striking out Walker and Wade to end the game.

When the dust settled, Austin and Kelly were both ejected from the game, as were Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin and relief pitcher Tommy Kahnle. 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. Things started to get heated in the fourth inning after Pedro Martinez threw a pitch over the head of Karim Garcia.

With that being said, the suspensions following this brawl will probably be rather similar. A nice beanball courtesy of Joe Kelly in the direction of Tyler Austin as a reaction to said slide in the 3rd, causing all hell to break loose.
