Why Yankees' Aaron Judge put Joe Kelly in a headlock

It was a rare display of emotion from an unemotional man.

The scrawny right-hander, working about a 45-minute rain delay after the fifth inning, held the Yankees without a victor on the seventh inning until Aaron decide completed it using a double over the top of centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. Nevin was seen yelling toward the Red Sox dugout and Cora motioned that Nevin should get back in his box. He re-read "The Mental ABC's of Pitching", the tome of late longtime sports psychologist Harvey Dorfman.

Red Sox: Ramirez's X-rays did not show any fracture, the club said. Porcello even rigged up a string in those spring bullpen sessions to better identify where his pitches were entering the strike zone.

A rain could have retrieved the Yankees in the ignominy of being nohit by Rick Porcello, however nevertheless, it could not spare them on Thursday night. Even the Red Sox meted out a the Yankees rebounded having a 10-6 victory that was brawl-filled, and Porcello jeopardized to shoot on the first no hitter against the Yankees since 2003.

After the game, both sides denied any wrongdoing - Austin said his slide was clean and Kelly said he didn't hit Austin on objective - but Major League Baseball obviously wasn't buying that.

"I felt OK", Gray said. That's the biggest thing. Now I'm sure in Austin's mind he may have already been set on going out there but the fact that Kelly egged him on only made his decision easier.

And make no mistake, the Red Sox are counting on it. Joe Morgan holds the team record with a 12-0 start in 1988, Lou Boudreau was 10-2 in in 1952 and Ed Barrow was 10-2 in 1918.

Amid the fisticuffs and the pointed words and gestures between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, there was proof at Fenway Park on Wednesday night that chivalry was not yet dead. "I don't know if he was screaming specifically at me".

"You never like it", Judge said.

The punishments were just handed down for Austin and Kelly. But regardless of how much he downplayed it, the Red Sox have to be concerned that Price couldn't feel his hand in an early-season start against the Yankees.

Hector Velazquez will start Saturday, and Brian Johnson will go Monday. "I knew it last night before I went to sleep".

Last year, after the fracas in Detroit, Brett Gardner - who had turned 34 that day and had gotten into a jawing match with then-Tigers manager Brad Ausmus - suggested that maybe he was getting more ornery with age. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton - neither of whom are known for their mean streaks - ended up at the center of the brawl for a period, with their size seemingly turning them into de facto enforcers in the melee. "But now you can call that pitch because he's going to execute".

The same could not be said for the Boston pen, but Porcello had provided it with enough of a cushion. But then, Porcello added, "everything felt real good". He and the NY bullpen blanked the Red Sox the rest of the way.
