New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox, 4/12/18: Yankees Go For Series Win


The teams making up the top five all call big cities home, with the Los Angeles Dodgers second at $3 billion, followed by the Chicago Cubs ($2.9 billion), San Francisco Giants ($2.85 billion) and Boston Red Sox ($2.8 billion). "It's fun playing behind a guy when he's going like that".

One night after the benches cleared twice and the longtime rivals brawled during New York's 10-7 win, there were no such incidents in the finale of the three-game set.

"It's something that needs to be a little better", Manager Aaron Boone said. It was death by a thousand paper cuts that chased Sonny Gray by the fourth inning. He was charged with six runs and seven hits.

By then, the Red Sox has added a pair of runs, as the slow-paced Gray struggled again in the third. "Scuffling to find the zone, didn't execute very well and made it hard all the way around". And Sanchez greedily tried to throw out Bradley advancing to third after Sandy Leon swung over a breaking ball in the dirt.

Nunez led off the third with a double high off the Green Monster in left, and he scored when Stanton misplayed a high pop hit to left by Jackie Bradley Jr.

Hicks (strained right intercostal) came off the disabled list, started at designated hitter and hit sixth.

After Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo plunked Alex Rodriguez in a July 2004 game at Fenway Park, Rodriguez had some choice words for Arroyo.

Neither Cora nor Nevin backed down Thursday from their confrontation the night before, when Cora, from the dugout railing, drew a box with his hand and waved for Nevin to get back in it.

Major League Baseball announced Thursday that Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly and Yankees DH Tyler Austin will be suspended for their roles in Wednesday's benches-clearing brawl between the teams.

Suspensions were scheduled to go into effect tonight, however both players have opted to appeal the punishment, which will be delayed until the appeals process completes. He played catch on flat ground Thursday and is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday when Boston opens a nine-game road trip at the Los Angeles Angels. Moving forward for the Sox is a four-game series against the 5-8 Baltimore Orioles.
