Tyler Austin Brings Back Baseball's Greatest Rivalry

The best rivalry in baseball is back. In the third inning, an admittedly kind of dirty slide from Tyler Austin cleared both benches, but no punches were thrown. Tensions were high, especially after the Red Sox lost Dustin Pedroia on a very similar play last year. In the 7th, Joe Kelly nailed Austin in the ribs with a 98 mph fastball. Austin slammed his bat on the ground and took some steps towards the mound. When Joe Kelly beckoned Austin to charge, punches were thrown as both benches cleared.

The Yankees ended up winning the game 10-7 behind two Gary Sanchez home runs. It was a much needed win after being destroyed by the Red Sox the night before with a score of 14-1. After a relative lull in these two teams’ rivalry for the past 14 years, the rivalry looks like it’s about to get back on track.

Red Sox fan Thomas Flaherty said “Austin was trying to take Brock Holt out, he got what he deserved.” Yankees fan John Goldszer disagrees, he said “Austin’s slide was clean, the Red Sox overreacted.” There won’t be brawls in every Yankees-Red Sox game going forward, but the games will return to the incredible intensity from the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
