The Magic Is Back, Yankees Red Sox Fight Fuels Rivalry

The Yankees and Gary Sanchez jumped on the Red Sox early putting four runs on the board in the first and knocking David Price out of the game.

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

The plunking came a day after Yankees utilityman Tyler Austin charged the mound after getting hit by a Joe Kelly pitch to spark a benches-clearing brawl. Moving forward for the Sox is a four-game series against the 5-8 Baltimore Orioles.

This time it was first baseman Hanley Ramirez, who was struck on the base of the right hand by a fastball from Yankees pitcher Sonny Gray. Adam Frazier also went deep in support of Trevor Williams, who surrendered Kyle Schwarber's home run but just three other hits over six innings to improve to 3-0. The two teams will meet again for a series in NY next month, though it will be September when this rivalry really heats up.

Now he's rolling again, and so are the 10-2 Red Sox.

One encouraging sign at the plate: After a slow start, Andrew Benintendi had his second multi-hit game in a row. Judge ended up putting Kelly briefly in a headlock.

"It's not how the Red Sox-Yankees do things, is it?"

It was great when the Yankees went to the World Series on a walk-off home run from now coach Aaron Boone back in 2003.

In the third, the Sox already led by a score of 4-0 when Gray gave up back-to-back doubles by Nunez and JBJ.

Both players appealed their suspensions. The Yankees activated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list. Boston manager Alex Cora and Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin were fined for their roles in the fracas.

As teammate Giancarlo Stanton said following the game per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Needless to say, Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred isn't messing around and wants to nip this in the bud before things truly could get out of hand. While the Reds haven't put up big power numbers this season, the otherwise struggling Cardinals offense comes in ranking second in the NL in spanks (15 in 12 games).
