The Yankees And Red Sox Brawl Because That's How It Must Be

This was the second bench-clearing brawl of the day in the majors.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox rivalry went from lukewarm to hot during Wednesday's heated Major League Baseball encounter.

But that's not enough to restore the enormous amount of fun that once lived inside this bitter baseball rivalry. "I had no thought that they were going to throw at me". The benches cleared then as well but there was no further incident. There was the Pedro Martinez-Don Zimmer fracas.

By the way, the Yankees won, 10-7, to improve to 6-6, while the Red Sox dropped to 9-2.

The bad blood is back and it has people buzzing.

Flinging his bat down, the menace with which Austin then approached the mound left few in any doubt that he wanted more than a strong word with the pitcher. Members of both teams sprinted onto the field and a pileup ensued. Austin didn't seem to land a punch on Kelly before he was dragged down and Kelly might have landed one punch before the players were enveloped in the mob. "I don't think (the Red Sox) should have, you know?"

Trying to hit Kelly, Austin instead tagged Red Sox third base coach Carlos Febles. It is what it is. On that sequence we threw slider, fastball in, slider in, fastball in. The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is back. The first came when Yankees designated hitter Tyler Austin spiked Brock Holt with a slide into second base.

Cora was asked if he would've taken offense to such a slide.

That wasn't the case in the seventh inning when Joe Kelly hit Austin with a 90 plus miles per hour fastball.

"I was ready to defend myself", Kelly said after the game.

NY and Boston have a history of furious fights. Austin, 26, and Holt, 29, eventually cooled off, and the game resumed. The biggest from JD Martinez; a grand slam in the fifth brought the game within two. They've been fun and exciting to watch. NY will figure it all out, they'll hit a ton and they'll win a lot more than they'll lose.

Despite the Bombers' bats finally waking up, that wouldn't be the story of the night. NY posted a four-run first inning that knocked Red Sox starter David Price out of the game after just one inning of work. "That's what they got", Red Sox pitcher David Price said. My arm felt really good.

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs Wednesday as the visiting New York Yankees earned an emotional 10-7 victory that ended the Boston Red Sox's nine-game win streak.

Aaron Judge and others try and break up the fight.
