Porcello leads Sox by Yankees

Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees - 4/11/18 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Cashman: Stanton facing adversity like a pro

Nunez - who returned this year from a knee injury he suffered last September - didn't return to the game after the rain delay.

On Wednesday night, the Red Sox and Yankees had two benches-clearing incidents that stemmed from what the Red Sox perceived as a dirty slide by Tyler Austin into shortstop Brock Holt, covering second base.

My first reaction to the news is that Tyler Austin got the short end of the stick.

Gray was bad in Thursday's 6-3 loss in the series finale at Fenway Park, giving up six runs - with three wild pitches - in just three-plus innings.

The game was delayed by rain for 45 minutes after the fifth inning.

Ramirez, 34, underwent X-rays that came back negative, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

"Day-to-day. He was pretty sore", Cora said, as seen on NESN's postgame coverage.

To be sure, it wasn't on the level of classic Red Sox-Yankees melees, like in 1973 when Thurman Munson and Carlton Fisk went at it, or 1976, when Fisk and Lou Piniella squared off, or even 2004, when Jason Varitek used his mitt to wipe the smug smile off the face of Alex Rodriguez.

"This would have been nice after last night and getting beat up in Game 1, but we'll turn the page", NY manager Aaron Boone said.


"It's frustrating because he is really important for us and we know what he is capable of, " the manager said.

Yankees starter Sonny Gray (1-1) was pulled after a leadoff single by Moreland in the fourth.

Austin and Kelly grappled to the ground, with Austin landing one clean shot against his opponent.

Porcello induced Didi Gregorius to fly to right and finished his outing by striking out Gary Sanchez and Aaron Hicks. "It actually hit him in the left one and then hit him in the right one".

Now he's rolling again, and so are the 10-2 Red Sox. Both HBPs by both pitchers were clearly a ball that got away from them on a wet night in Boston.

The suspensions were to go into effect on Thursday night, but both players have appealed and so the penalties will be held in abeyance.

Kelly, Austin, Boston manager Alex Cora and NY third-base coach Phil Nevin also were fined.

- After exiting Wednesday's game in the first inning, David Price is set to make his next start after a successful day of catch Thursday.
