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

Mookie Betts went 4-for-4 with a grand slam and five runs scored

In a matchup between clubs that have long clashed, Austin rushed the mound after being hit by a pitch from the Red Sox reliever, triggering a bench-clearing brawl Wednesday night as NY ended Boston's nine-game winning streak with a 10-7 victory.

That's the takeaway from Wednesday night's game at frosty 40-degree Fenway Park, as a four-hour slugfest featured two incidents that cleared the benches and the bullpens and had the 32,400 fans in the ballpark roaring. This one included multiple punches. Austin spiked his bat with his right hand and headed for the mound, with Kelly landing a couple haymakers and Austin connecting solidly to the temple of Red Sox third base coach Carlos Febles with a right hand. Kelly waved Austin at him, and things quickly got out of hand.

Said Austin: "I thought there was absolutely nothing wrong with that slide".

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

He did, however, get a sense of how angry Austin became. It seems every time these teams meet up it takes well over the average time of a ball game to figure out the victor.

But that's not enough to restore the enormous amount of fun that once lived inside this bitter baseball rivalry.

But the England global made no mistake nine minutes from time when he headed Iwobi's delivery to the back post beyond McCarthy. He'd get his goal in the 81st minute, stabbing home a header at the back post from an Iwobi cross.


If the Yankees don't pursue revenge during Thursday's series finale, the next opportunity will come at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, May 8, when the vicious rivals open another three-game set.

Sanchez came into the night two for his last 26 and good numbers of Boston starter David Price.

"You know that's coming", he said. "They feel like us". There will be something soon. This is great for Boston, this is great for NY and this is great for the sport.

Old-timers will probably see a play like that and reminisce on a time when men were men and hard slides were part of the game, but the fact is baseball has outlawed slides out of the baseline, and Holt has plenty of reason to be peeved at a move from Austin that could have hurt him.

Now when I go on air today at 2 pm I'm going to start so many fights with Red Sox fans it's going to be great.
