Kelly, Austin suspended for Yankees-Red Sox brawl

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

"What matters is it gave them more runs and it docked Sonny (Gray)'s ERA".

Gray was bad in Thursday's 6-3 loss in the series finale at Fenway Park, giving up six runs - with three wild pitches - in just three-plus innings.

Beltran and the Astros eventually went on to capture the World Series, and Porcello was left to ponder a 2017 campaign in which he finished among the league leaders in all the wrong categories.

"Out of character for me", Cora said.

"I knew (I was fine) this morning when I woke up, I knew it last night before I went to sleep", Price continued.

But on Thursday, MLB would make their ruling. Moving forward for the Sox is a four-game series against the 5-8 Baltimore Orioles. The 38 home runs he allowed were tops in baseball, and the 236 hits piled up by the opposition ranked second.

Later in the game, the Red Sox announced Ramirez suffered a wrist contusion, and that the X-rays were negative. Porcello worked around the two leadoff hits for 7 shutout innings.

The error by Wade was the 13th by the Yankees in 13 games this season. Porcello, from Chester, lost the ideal game when he hit Giancarlo Stanton with a pitch in the fourth inning.

In another quirk, the Yankees on Friday night will face Detroit pitcher Mike Fiers, who hit Stanton flush in the face with an 88-mph fast late in the 2014 season, sending him to the hospital with a broken nose, cheek and orbital bone, a broken incisor and a half-dozen chipped teeth.

Perhaps the boldest lesson from this first Red Sox-Yankees meeting of the Alex Cora and Aaron Boone eras is neither team is afraid of confrontation. Eduardo Nunez doubled to start the frame and when Jackie Bradley Jr. lifted a shallow fly to left, Stanton overran the ball and let it fall. I'm three starts in, we're 12 games in - a lot of baseball to be played. "I was about ready to jump over the fence".

And just like that, a rivalry that could best be described as "in name only" over the last decade finally courses with the 1.21 gigawatts needed to send us back to the future. He was replaced by Mitch Moreland.

"(Beltran) felt that the velocity was there, the movement was there, but that pitch made him a different pitcher compared to previous years", Cora said. "It was just one of those nights".
