Twice the benches cleared in Wednesday night's game at Fenway Park between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, and Yankees designated hitter Tyler Austin was in the middle of everything.

That is certainly a welcome sight to the Red Sox. The club needs to be able to thrive without him, because when it comes to it down the stretch, chances are that Price will either be sidelined or completely ineffective. "But I just wanted him to know that it was a bad slide, and I think everyone on the field knows that it was, and I think he knows that now, too".

I was ready to defend myself.

"Sliding with the cleats up is a no-no in baseball", Martinez wrote in justifying Kelly's plunking. He was just one of the Yankees who was looking to break out of a slump, the other Gary Sanchez.

The inning was highlighted by a grand slam from JD Martinez off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka. Stanton's two-run triple to right center and a two-run blast by Sanchez off an advertising board above the Monster Seats gave NY a 4-0 head start in the top of the first.

Austin went 1-for-2 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout in the win. Boone said Hicks may rejoin the Yankees on Thursday. In a possible act of damage control in support of their high-priced left-hander, the Red Sox announced that Price was removed from the game for precautionary reasons after experiencing a sensation in his left hand.

The sight of the 6-foot-7 Judge and the 6-6 Giancarlo Stanton charging onto the field was enough to spook the 5-10, 180-pound Holt.

Red Sox committed no errors in their first 10 games, the franchise's longest streak to begin any season. Trevor Williams (2-0, 1.59 ERA) will take the mound for Pittsburgh, duelling against Kyle Hendricks (0-0, 4.09 ERA).
