Why Yankees' Aaron Judge put Joe Kelly in a headlock

Mets Red Sox continue red-hot starts in MLB

A pitch by Red Sox's Joe Kelly connected with Yankee hitter Tyler Austin, who threw his bat down and confronted his Boston rival. Austin slid hard and arguably a little late, and while he didn't stray from the base-path, he did go in "spikes up" and part of his cleat caught the leg of Sox second baseman Brock Holt. 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.

A day after the brawl, the Bombers looked lifeless and sloppy in a 6-3 rubber-game loss to the Red Sox on Thursday night at Fenway Park. New England Sports Network will showcase the matchup and the game is scheduled to get underway at 7:10 p.m. ET.

The error by Wade was the 13th by the Yankees in 13 games this season.

First flitting before my eyes were the runs scored that night by the Red Sox, a drumbeat of punishment and pain.

Kelly, Austin, Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle and Yanks' third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected.

Flinging his bat down, the menace with which Austin then approached the mound left few in any doubt that he wanted more than a strong word with the pitcher.

"Two competitive teams going at it and stuff happens", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.


Boone defended Austin's slide after the game, saying he didn't think it was "dirty". Unfortunately, Aaron Judge ended the no-hit bid with a leadoff double, followed up by an infield single by Stanton. Which is why I understand Kelly's beaning of Austin. Kelly waved Austin at him, and things quickly escalated.

Kelly said his pitches got away on a cold night. He gave up four runs on three hits with two walks in the shortest start of his career.

The seeming disinterest bled over to the fan bases as well as there wasn't much more on the line than any other given game.

Yankees: LHP Jordan Montgomery (0-0, 4.82 ERA) makes his third start of the season as NY opens a three-game series Friday night at Detroit against Tigers RHP Mike Fiers (1-0, 0.00 ERA). He then struck out Gary Sanchez along with Aaron Hicks and murdered Di Di Gregorius onto a gentle fly ball.

In the visiting dugout, New York's pitchers have allowed 5.4 runs per game and its starters own a 4.24 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 9.19 K/9. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor struck out six and walked none in his third straight win to begin the year.

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