Red Sox expect retaliation from Yankees for Kelly plunking Austin

Mauer reaches 2000-hit milestone with single

The game between the longtime rivals included two bench-clearing incidents, the second of which, in the seventh inning, turned into an on-field brawl after Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly hit the Yankees' Tyler Austin with a pitch in the back.

When he was hit, Austin became instantly enraged, throwing his bat down and then his helmet before charging the mound. Thus ensued the following scenes.

"Yeah, you know, Tyler Austin is playing the game the right way, clean, the right way, and some guy decides to fire one at you 99, you know, you never know how you react in that situation, so I had no issue with that", Boone said.

"I was ready to defend myself", he said. If we're going to get back to those glory years when Sox-Yanks was must-see entertainment every time they took the field together, there's one necessary ingredient: hatred. Austin did seem to land a blow in the ensuing scrum on Boston third-base coach Carlos Febles.

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

Kelly, Austin and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected. There was the Pedro Martinez-Don Zimmer fracas. "Other than that, Kelly executed perfectly", Martinez tweeted. Holt said he doesn't believe the Yankees will throw at him, hinting that if it does happen, NY will probably seek out one of Boston's middle-of-the-order bats. "That means fight fight fight!" he posted.


Before the melee, there was some baseball. The Red Sox announced that the star pitcher felt a "sensation" in his hand, leading to his early departure.

The Yankees scored a run in the ninth inning on a wild pitch.

Sanchez drove in four runs and Stanton had three hits and three RBIs.

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

The Yankees, meanwhile, are fielding Gray, who is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA to start the season. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer over six-plus innings pitched in each of his six career starts against NY at Fenway.
