New York Yankees: Bombs And Brawls In Fenway Win

New York Yankees: Bombs And Brawls In Fenway Win

Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price exited Wednesday's start against the New York Yankees after only one inning, complaining about numbness in his left hand.

Former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez said Austin's slide was a "no-no". The benches cleared then as well but there was no further incident.

Austin disagreed with Holt's assessment on the timing of the slide.

"If you look at the game we were trying to go in earlier with (Heath) Hembree inside with (Austin)".

Kelly came in to replace Matt Barnes in the top of the seventh frame. Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens and Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez infamously fought during the 2003 AL Championship Series.

He fooled Austin on a swinging strike on his first offering, before tossing a pitch way inside.

Kelly missed on his first attempt at hitting him but finally landed the blow two pitches later on a 98 miles per hour fastball.

Austin slammed his bat on the ground and took off toward Kelly.

The scuffle spilled across the field before it broke up in front of the Boston dugout on the first base side, with Yankees sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton pushing the pile.

"I was ready to defend myself", Kelly told reporters.

Kelly, Austin and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected.

One side says it was a good, clean slide meant to break up the chance for a double play. "I had no clue where [the ball] was going".

After two offensive games to begin the series, I would expect tomorrow to be no different for these rivals as they face off for the third and final game tomorrow night.

Austin went 1-for-2 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout in the win. IT was the third inning when the rivalry spiked back up to a fever pitch.
