Red Sox's Kelly, Yanks' Austin suspended for being in brawl

Yankees won’t overtake the Red Sox if they keep playing like this Boston Red Sox: No one hotter than Mookie Betts right now
Elias Hubbard | 17 April, 2018, 18:48

The big blow came via Francisco Cervelli in the seventh with a three-run shot to run the lead to 6-1, the eventual final score. He struck out six and walked none in his third straight win to begin the year.

Moreland entered after Boston first baseman Hanley Ramirez departed in the first inning when he suffered a bruised right wrist after being hit by a pitch from Yankees starter Sonny Gray.

The match ended with the Yankees halting the Red Sox's nine-game winning streak with 10-7 victory. He's hasn't made it past the fourth inning in two of his three starts this season.

Ramirez has been off to a solid start to 2018, hitting.357 with two home runs and 11 runs batted in.

Porcello limited NY to two hits, none until Aaron Judge led off the seventh with a double to deep center.

During the fight, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton were peacemakers as they shoved multiple Red Sox back in the direction of their dugout while punches were being thrown behind them. The Yankees activated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list. Walden gave up three runs, two earned, in the ninth, but Kimbrel came in and slammed the door closed. At the end of the fifth, the game was put on hold with Porcello having thrown just 60 pitches.

Porcello threw 60 pitches and retired 15 of the 16 batters he faced prior to the rain delay.

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.

In 1973, another brawl ensued when Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk was bowled over at the plate by Yankees catcher Thurman Munson. Ramirez exited the game and was replaced by Mitch Moreland, who later delivered an RBI single in the second.

As heavy rain fell, Stanton searched for the ball and over ran it, ending up next to the foul wall. Betts later grounded into a fielder's choice, resulting in a run making it 6-0.

Joe Kelly was suspended six games and Tyler Austin got five for their actions that led to Wednesday's brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees.

When the dust settled, Austin and Kelly were both ejected from the game, as were Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin and relief pitcher Tommy Kahnle.
