The Boston Red Sox lost to the New York Yankees Wednesday, April 11th 10-7, snapping their 9 game winning streak, losing for the first time since Opening Day on March 29th. Tempers flared at Fenway, as the dugouts and bullpens cleared twice, once resulting in punches being swung.

The game didn't start off on a positive note for the Red Sox, as David Price left after 1 inning after experiencing a "sensation" in his pitching hand. He gave up 3 hits, 4 earned runs and walked 2, his shortest start of his career.

After the Red Sox didn't hit a single grand slam in 2017, they hit their 3rd of the year, the 3rd in 4 games. JD Martinez hit the "grannie" on Wednesday night, and ended up 2-4 at the plate.

Jackie Bradley Jr. was 3-4 scoring 2 runs, Mookie Betts was 1-4 with a double and RBI and Hanley Ramirez was 1-3 with his 2nd homer in consecutive days. He now has 12 RBIs on the season to lead the Red Sox.

 For the Yankees Gary Sanchez was 3-5 with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs and Giancarlo Stanton was 3-5 with a triple and 3 RBIs.
The first bench clearing skirmish occurred in the 3rd inning when Tyler Austin slid hard and high into 2nd base, at Brock Holt, cleating Holt in the calf. In the 7th inning reliever Joe Kelly hit Austin with a fastball in a pitch "that got away". Austin slammed his bat on the plate, Kelly beckoned him and it was on!
The Red Sox and Yankees will play the rubber game of the series Thursday night, April 12th with the pregame starting at 6:25 and 1st pitch at 7:10 on AM 1370 WDEA.
