New York Yankees' Tyler Austin will appeal 5-game suspension

Why Yankees' Aaron Judge put Joe Kelly in a headlock

Both players appealed their suspensions.

That pitch appeared to be in retaliation for Austin's hard slide in the third inning when his lead foot clipped the foot of Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt during a force out. One night after Joe Kelly's fastball to Tyler Austin's shoulder blade had kicked off a brawl, both teams were on high alert, but no one viewed Sonny Gray's pitch as intentional; Ramirez was trying to swing at it when it hit him.

The Red Sox won 6-3 and won the series 2-1, making the Sox record 10-2 and the Yankees 6-7. Cervelli had a monster series, going 6 for 12 with a triple, two home runs and seven RBI in the three-game series.

BOSTON The fuse has officially been lit in the newest chapter of the ramped-up Yankees-Red Sox rivalry.

Now when I go on air today at 2 pm I'm going to start so many fights with Red Sox fans it's going to be great.

Also fined for their roles in Wednesday's dust-up: Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin.




"I told (Cora) I was fine for Monday or I could come back on Saturday or Sunday or go sit in the bullpen if needed", Price said.

Major League Baseball has levied punishments for Kelly and Austin.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Jackie Bradley Jr. of the Red Sox took off from first toward second on a ground ball, just as Austin had done three innings earlier.

"We're moving on, " Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. Andrus, 29, has played at least 145 games every year from 2009-17.

After the game, the teams were split on the initial cause of the brawl, with the Yankees dismissing Austin's slide into third as a baseball play. Four players on the disabled list also were fined for entering the field during the skirmish: Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia, and Boston infielders Xander Bogaerts, Dustin Pedroia, and Marco Hernandez.

My first reaction to the news is that Tyler Austin got the short end of the stick. He is batting.327 with two home runs and five RBIs in 14 games this season. The Tigers said pitcher Jordan Zimmermann is expected to make his next start after being hit on the jaw by a line drive during a game against Cleveland on Wednesday. Whether or not he meant to throw at Yankees reserve Karim Garcia during the playoffs, Martinez sailed a pitch over the outfielder's head that triggered one of the most outrageous moments in recent baseball history. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor struck out six and walked none in his third straight win to begin the year. He is 1-4 with a 4.93 ERA in six starts against Boston.
