The brawl in Boston was the second big fight of the day in baseball.
Now we'll see whether there's more in store for the rekindled rivalry. I don't think they'll hit me if they hit anyone. The benches cleared then as well, but mostly yelling ensued.
The bad blood is back and it has people buzzing.
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 1 strikeout in Wednesday's 10-7 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Both teams ran out as the kerfuffle intensified.
"Sliding with the cleats up is a no-no in baseball", Martinez wrote in justifying Kelly's plunking. Three years later, Lou Piniella bowled into Fisk at the plate, and Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee separated a shoulder in the ensuing fighting. "Grab his jersey. But the first base coach grabbed me". It is what it is.
"You know that's coming", he said.
Gary Sanchez hit two home runs in a game that twice saw the benches empty and a fight that resulted in four ejections.
Cora was asked if he would've taken offense to such a slide.
With further testes expected, Price's status should be updated some time after the game.
"The only thing I would had done different than Joe Kelly tonight, is I would've hit Tyler Austin at his previous at bat".
"I was ready to defend myself", Kelly said after the game. "If not this series, maybe in NY". Cooler heads prevailed and the game continued.
NY starter Masahiro Tanaka had retired 10 straight men into the bottom of the fifth, only allowing a solo homer to left by Hanley Ramirez in the first. They've been fun and exciting to watch.
It was great for Stanton who built off a good night Tuesday night. NY will figure it all out, they'll hit a ton and they'll win a lot more than they'll lose. In a possible act of damage control in support of their high-priced left-hander, the Red Sox announced that Price was removed from the game for precautionary reasons after experiencing a sensation in his left hand.
