  • Joe Mauer gets 2,000th career hit

One of the longest-running, bitterest rivalries in American sport, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox indulged a full-on bench-clearing brawl in Fenway Park last night.

The Yankees vs. Red Sox bout was the second fight that happened in the league Wednesday. Austin slammed his bat on the plate, threw it down and took four steps toward the mound while hollering. Thus ensued the following scenes. It seems every time these teams meet up it takes well over the average time of a ball game to figure out the victor.

I was ready to defend myself. "I mean, not just those two, they have a pretty big team over there". Austin and Kelly were both ejected for their respective roles in the fracas, and the bad blood has ample opportunity to spill over against with 17 games remaining this season between the two clubs. Not only would Pedro have done the same thing that Joe Kelly did - which is, drill Tyler Austin in the back as retribution for his hard slide earlier in the game - he would've done it sooner. Martinez picked up Zimmer and threw him to the ground. "Other than that, Kelly executed perfectly".

"Sliding with the cleats up is a no-no in baseball".


A year later, Boston's Bronson Arroyo hit Alex Rodriguez with a pitch, A-Rod shouted at the pitcher, and Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek punched Rodriguez in the face, setting off a scuffle.

Gary Sanchez was the star of the show in the Yankees' eventual 10-7 victory as he cracked two brilliant home-runs, although the match will forever be remembered for a violent brawl that broke out during the contest. According to the Red Sox, Price felt a "sensation in his left hand" which forced him out of the game. 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.

It all began in the bottom of the third inning, when Austin was a runner on first base.

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