"You don't need to drill him for that, and if you're going to do it, do it on the first pitch."
He and the NY bullpen blanked the Red Sox the rest of the way. Aaron Judge broke it up with a leadoff double in the seventh, but Porcello gave up only two hits and struck out six in seven walk-free innings of a 6-3 Red Sox victory in the rubber game of the first series of the season against their rivals from NY. Porcello improved to 3-0 and had a no-hitter until Aaron Judge led off the seventh with a double.

"It seemed like he threw everything where he wanted to throw it", Boston first baseman Mitch Moreland said. "Rick's great. He was on display tonight".

Porcello stayed in after a 45-minute rain delay and retired the Yankees in order in the sixth.

"I just feel like me", Porcello said. "Honestly, it wasn't a big deal at all".

"I told him I was fine for Monday or I could come back on Saturday or Sunday, go sit in the pen if needed", Price said. Ramirez dropped his bat, hopped toward the third base dugout and winced in pain, tended to by Boston medical staff before heading to the home clubhouse.

The Red Sox won for the 10th time in 11 games, including a 14-1 victory over the Yankees on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Ramirez hit a home run with an exit velocity 117.5 miles per hour.

He is 3-0 with a 1.83 earned run average in three starts.

"A lot of people get caught up in their emotions, whether it's the fans, the media, the players and I think they lose a sense of the game itself", Bradley Jr. said Thursday after batting practice. "I was frustrated in the first half of the game". Craig Kimbrel then came in and got three outs for his fourth save.

"He was screaming at our dugout", Cora said. Buster Posey laced a two-run double and Hunter Pence hit a two-run single to back Stratton, who allowed only a single by San Diego hurler Clayton Richard during his seven innings of work.

The Boston Red Sox bounced back nicely just one night after suffering their only loss since opening day. "Scuffling to find the zone, didn't execute very well and made it hard all the way around".

Stanton overran a ball down the left field line, turning an innocuous pop fly into a ground-rule double. Nunez advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored when Sandy Leon singled to right. He then struck out Gary Sanchez along with Aaron Hicks and murdered Di Di Gregorius onto a gentle fly ball. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment.

What ensued was a good, old-fashioned Yankees-Red Sox brawl.

So, if Porcello felt like shouting as he left the game, well, let's just say he was entitled. Boston placed LHP Bobby Poyner (strained hamstring) on the 10-day disabled list and recalled Walden from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Tyler Austin of the Yankees charges Joe Kelly of the Red Sox during the brawl between the two teams Wednesday night. They'll also receive undisclosed fines and both will appeal their punishments.
