Porcello flirts with no-no as Red Sox beat Yankees

Mets Red Sox continue red-hot starts in MLB The New York Mets are off to their best start in history while the Boston Red Sox made a statement against the New York

Austin received a five-game suspension and a fine for charging the mound after he was hit by the 98-mph fastball. Both players appealed their punishment and can play while their appeals are considered. Boston took exception to a questionable slide from Yankees DH Tyler Austin, who clipped shortstop Brock Holt while trying to break up a double play.

However, things really escalated in the seventh innings when Joe Kelly took a hold of the ball and flung it in the direction of Austin.

Mild-mannered giant Aaron Judge could have done far more to the Red Sox pitcher than he did in Wednesday's seventh-inning brawl in the Yankees' 10-7 win at Fenway Park.

Kelly, Austin, Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin also were fined.

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

Holt was clipped by Austin's spike and didn't like it, the benches and bullpens emptying with no real fracas.

In the wake of this incident, the Yankees general manager Brian Cashman erred on the opinion that "there was no reason for fisticuffs", but, when "two competitive teams [are] going at it, stuff happens".

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs in a game that twice saw the benches empty and a fight that resulted in four ejections.

Boone defended Austin's slide after the game, saying he didn't think it was "dirty".

Kelly said his pitches got away on a cold night.

Kelly hit Austin a couple of times, and the Yankees designated hitter wound up with a swollen lip.

However, Kelly and Austin will be eligible to play on Thursday after appealing the sanction. If you want an idea of just how different the 1970s were from the contemporary game, only Nettles and Lee were ejected from that contest.

The injury lands Andrus on the disabled list for the first time in 10 seasons in the majors. Austin's suspension might get knocked down to three or four games. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer over six-plus innings pitched in each of his six career starts against NY at Fenway.

In seven career starts versus Boston, he's 1-5 with a 5.97 ERA - thanks in part to his performance Thursday, perhaps his worst start as a Yankee. He made three starts against the Red Sox in 2017 and compiled a 1-2 record against them with a 4.50 ERA and 17 strikeouts.
