Red Sox Beat Yankees 6-3 To Win First Series Of Season

Red Sox Beat Yankees 6-3 To Win First Series Of Season

Tyler Austin slid into second cleats high and cleared the benches after questionable contact with Sox' Short Stop Brock Holt. Holt took exception and said something to Austin.

However, things really escalated in the seventh innings when Joe Kelly took a hold of the ball and flung it in the direction of Austin. Austin rushed the mound after being struck by a pitch from Kelly.

First of all suspensions-at least of Tyler Austin and Boston's Joe Kelly, but what about CC Sabathia and Aaron Judge? Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames shoved Austin across the infield toward the Yankees' dugout.

Later in the game, the Red Sox announced Ramirez suffered a wrist contusion, and that the X-rays were negative. Keep this up (remember this was the second basebrawl of the day), along with the billion home runs being hit because of the *wink wink* totally not juiced baseballs, and we might be staring down a baseball resurgence. Colorado star Nolan Arenado charged the mound after being a pitch from San Diego's Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind him. One was from the Bronx in NY, the other from 4 Yawkey Way in Boston, Mass.

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

For the second straight night, the Red Sox had one of their standouts leave a game before the start of the second inning.

Benintendi hit a grounder right at Wade, whose throw to home got past Sanchez and allowed Leon to score. The two teams will meet again for a series in NY next month, though it will be September when this rivalry really heats up.

The inning was highlighted by a grand slam from JD Martinez off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka.

With two series over the final couple weeks, including a three-game set to close out the season in Boston, the battle for the AL East will likely go down to the wire.

"I had it as three or four rows in the seats", Stanton said.

An Austin RBI single gave the Yankees a 5-1 lead in the third.

Yankees: Hicks (right intercostal strain) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and started at designated hitter.

Red Sox: Price said he had "no pain" in his hand or arm when he was checked out by doctors.

Red Sox committed no errors in their first 10 games, the franchise's longest streak to begin any season.

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.

But on Thursday, MLB would make their ruling.

Volstad, 31, was unscored upon in 14 innings of spring training work with the White Sox before being sent to Triple-A Charlotte last Friday, where he surrendered five runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings.

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.
