Yankees, Red Sox brawl after Tyler Austin is hit with pitch

Red Sox pitcher David Price

That is certainly a welcome sight to the Red Sox.

New York Yankees' Tyler Austin, center, rushes Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Joe Kelly, right, after being hit by a pitch during the seventh inning of a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston. After Austin took a Kelly fastball to the ribs in the seventh inning, he slammed his bat to the ground and charged the mound, as the two players exchanged a number of punches in the skirmish. Thus ensued the following scenes.

Holt said something to Austin as he got up and began to go back to the dugout. "You know sometimes in your slide it carries you, and I don't know if there's any carryover from all the (Manny) Machado stuff previous year, and they're going to handle things a certain way now". "If someone comes on my property in my backyard, I'm going to put up two dogs and get ready to defend myself".

Austin, Kelly and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected.

Thurman Munson collided with catcher Carlton Fisk in 1973 after Gene Michael missed a bunt attempt.

"Sliding with the cleats up is a no-no in baseball", Martinez wrote in justifying Kelly's plunking. Martinez, of course, is no stranger to igniting fracases. "That means fight fight fight!" he posted. The Red Sox announced that the star pitcher felt a "sensation" in his hand, leading to his early departure.

NY jumped on Boston's bullpen, adding four more runs over next three innings.

Not only did the Yankees get a Sanchez home run in the first inning, Giancarlo Stanton crushed a two-run triple to centre field. The Sox bullpen would once again falter allowing six more runs through the final eight innings. Sanchez, who was hitting.056 coming into the day, added another homer in the fourth during his three-hit night to go with four RBI. He finished with four RBIs.

Yankees: RHP Sonny Gray (1-0, 3.60 ERA) will make his third start of the season today.
