Red Sox Beat Yankees 6-3 To Win First Series Of Season

Facing Chris Sale for the first time MLB strikeout leader Giancarlo Stanton added a pair of Ks to his total

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 carried a no-no through six innings and a rain delay. He allowed just the two hits, hit a batter, struck out six and had no walks.

Kelly has been suspended for six games and was fined an undisclosed amount of money for hitting Austin with a pitch and fighting. "But he was pretty good after the rain delay - he was mixing his pitches and hitting his spots all night".

And given the thin rotation depth behind Gray, Severino, Tanaka, Jordan Montgomery and CC Sabathia, who is now working his way back from a hip injury, the Yankees pretty much have to stick with this group and hope for better things to come. "Rick's great. He was on display tonight".

Porcello was up to 74 pitches through the sixth inning, recording four strikeouts. "Honestly, it wasn't a big deal at all". "That's why I went out there". Peace was restored until a few innings later when Sox reliever Joe Kelly put one between Austin's shoulder blades. Now the Red Sox and Yankees have to pay the consequences. He was replaced by Mitch Moreland, who singled in his first two at-bats.

Porcello, who climbed up in Morristown, N.J., lasted his command in their Yankees at Fenway Park: He's a 1.29 earned run average in 7 for example livelihood begins.

Aaron Boone pointed to Gray getting behind in the count too often. And even after he lost it, surrendering a scorched double to Aaron Judge to open the inning, he ended the inning with a fervor, striking out Gary Sanchez and Aaron Hicks in consecutive at-bats.

From there, the game belonged to Porcello.

"It shows that we've all got each other's back", Holt said.

Gray had two strikes on eight hitters - and five of them reached. However, he didn't receive much run support in those outings so the Red Sox probably wouldn't have won anyway. "My hand was just literally numb, and I couldn't feel it".

An inning later, Giancarlo Stanton over-ran a lazy Jackie Bradley Jr. fly ball to left by several feet, instead watching it fall behind him for an RBI double in the third inning. Gardner advanced to third and scored on Stanton's single.

Walden loaded the bases when he walked Judge, third baseman Rafael Devers made a fielding error on Stanton's grounder and Gregorius walked.

Sonny Gray (1-1) was terrible in his third start of the season, allowing six runs and seven hits in three innings-plus. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment.

Wolves promoted after Fulham falter
Millwall extended their 17-game unbeaten league run with a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United to remain in the final playoff place. It means that Wolves are promoted with four league games to spare and return to the top flight after a six-year absence.

"Day to day", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.

Thursday's game was devoid of any fisticuff-related drama - an area of intrigue after Wednesday night's melee.

It wasn't at his head but there was clearly intent from Kelly to hit Austin and then he encouraged him to come out to the mound and fight him.

The 42-year-old Cora is in his first season as Red Sox manager, after playing for the team from 2005-08 as part of his 14-year Major League Baseball playing career.

Porcello got out of the jam in the seventh, preserving Boston's 6-0 lead.

Porcello entered the game 2-0 on the season with a 2.04 ERA.
