Suspensions and Fines Handed Down After Last Night's Red Sox/Yankees Brawl

Suspensions and Fines Handed Down After Last Night's Red Sox/Yankees Brawl

Red Sox starter David Price (1-1) lasted just one inning, leaving the game after he experienced a tingling sensation in his left hand. Mitch Moreland likely start at first base.

One day removed from the violent brawl between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, MLB has handed down some stiff punishment to Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin.

My first reaction to the news is that Tyler Austin got the short end of the stick. Sonny Gray did hit Hanley Ramirez in the first inning, but it was clear it was unintentional.

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

The next series between the two will be in New York May 8-10.

With the win, Porcello improved to 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA.

The Yankees suffered through several losing seasons as they rebuilt, and the Red Sox seemed to morph more into the corporate ballplayers [VIDEO] you often see in the Bronx, as opposed to the fun-loving "idiots" that won it all in 2004. "It was one of those that got away", Kelly said. Now the Red Sox and Yankees have to pay the consequences. Buster Posey laced a two-run double and Hunter Pence hit a two-run single to back Stratton, who allowed only a single by San Diego hurler Clayton Richard during his seven innings of work.

"He was screaming at our dugout", Cora said.

Sonny Gray was terrible, Tyler Wade couldn't hit or field, and Stanton overran a routine fly ball that he appeared to have lost in the rain. Aaron Judge added two hits and two runs scored. IT was the third inning when the rivalry spiked back up to a fever pitch. Gray's troubles continued when he walked Brock Holt to load the bases with nobody out and Betts drove in Bradley with a sacrifice fly to center. Both players are appealing their suspensions, so they will be able to play until that is taken care of.

More good news for the Yankees' offense is Aaron Hicks returns to the lineup tonight after missing the last ten games with an Intercostal muscle strain. He played catch on flat ground Thursday and is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday when Boston opens a nine-game road trip at the Los Angeles Angels.

Needless to say, Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred isn't messing around and wants to nip this in the bud before things truly could get out of hand.

Austin, Kelly and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected. While the Reds haven't put up big power numbers this season, the otherwise struggling Cardinals offense comes in ranking second in the NL in spanks (15 in 12 games).
