YANKEES 10, RED SOX 7: Benches clear twice, just like old times

Mookie Betts went 4-for-4 with a grand slam and five runs scored

Wednesday night's display of bombs and brawn will be hard to top in Thursday's action between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, who are locked in a heated three game series tied at 1-1 at Fenway Park.

The bitter rivals tangled in the seventh inning, adding another chapter to a long history that has included some memorable brawls.

Later, the Red Sox appeared to take retribution when Joe Kelly hit Austin with a 98-mph fastball.

Vazquez didn't corral Austin before the Yankees designated hitter charged Kelly. Austin didn't seem to land a punch on Kelly before he was dragged down and Kelly might have landed one punch before the players were enveloped in the mob.

The Yankees scored a run in the ninth inning on a wild pitch.

Strong words from the Yankees' new skipper.

Austin and Kelly were ejected from the game, along with Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin and reliever Tommy Kahnle.

It was the second bench-clearing brawl of the day in the majors.

In the afternoon, the Padres and Rockies went at it after San Diego starter Luis Perdomo threw behind Colorado star Nolan Arenado.

NY prevailed 10-7 at Fenway Park, but there was plenty of excitement and drama from both teams.

Thurman Munson collided with catcher Carlton Fisk in 1973 after Gene Michael missed a bunt attempt. It wasn't quite Pedro tossing Don Zimmer by his bald head, or A-Rod brawling Jason Varitek, but it was still pretty fun and it felt like old times.

Masahiro Tanaka (2-1) went five innings, yielding six runs. J.D. Martinez, Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland have all homered off Gray in their careers. David Price was taken out of the game, after giving up four runs, in the first inning due to a concerning sensation in his left hand.

Sanchez drove in four runs and Stanton had three hits and three RBIs.

Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (2-0, 2.84 ERA) has won each of his two starts this season.
