"He is fine, but I'd rather give him one more day and he'll pitch Tuesday". He and the NY bullpen blanked the Red Sox the rest of the way.

Hanley Ramirez took a pitch off the right hand in the first inning, and had to leave the game. He allowed just the two hits, hit a batter, struck out six and had no walks.

"It seemed like he threw everything where he wanted to throw it", Boston first baseman Mitch Moreland said. They may have lost the game, but the 2018 Sox won over their fans.

The scrawny right-hander, working about a 45-minute rain delay after the fifth inning, held the Yankees without a victor on the seventh inning until Aaron decide completed it using a double over the top of centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.

"I remember Carlos Beltran, he talked about him previous year and he felt his stuff was still there, but his changeup wasn't there", Cora said. "Honestly, it wasn't a big deal at all. I'm three starts in, we're 12 games in, a lot of baseball to be played, but definitely want to continue to build off this start".

Amid the fisticuffs and the pointed words and gestures between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, there was proof at Fenway Park on Wednesday night that chivalry was not yet dead. Austin came in with his front spike up and clipped Holt's leg, Holt appeared to think it a dirty play, and both teams' benches cleared to discuss the matter further in the area around second base.

Briefly: Bryce Conley, the A's 22nd-round pick last season, pitched six innings and combined with Ty Damron and Josh Reagan on a no-hitter as Oakland's Class A Midwest League team, Beloit, beat host Burlington 2-0. Unfortunately, Aaron Judge ended the no-hit bid with a leadoff double, followed up by an infield single by Stanton.

A rain could have retrieved the Yankees in the ignominy of being nohit by Rick Porcello, however nevertheless, it could not spare them on Thursday night. "I was frustrated in the first half of the game". Marcus Walden, pitching in his second inning of relief, loaded the bases with no outs, then Sanchez smacked a three-run double.

"Out of character for me", Cora said.

"We needed length tonight", Cora said, "he did it".

NY bats were mostly punch-less Thursday, though, through seven innings.

It wasn't just Thursday night that makes Gray look like a bad matchup against the Red Sox.

"It feels good", said Porcello, who has a 1.83 ERA through three starts. "Scuffling to find the zone, didn't execute very well and made it hard all the way around".

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. Nunez advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored when Sandy Leon singled to right. One of the walks was to Brock Holt, who entered the game 1-for-13 for the season.

Betts lifted a sacrifice fly and furnished a run-scoring grounder while the Red Sox were building a 6-0 lead through three innings against Sonny Gray. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment. But Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel was summoned and quickly restored order, retiring Hicks on a groundout and striking out Walker and Wade to end the game.

Just before the game, Major League Baseball suspended Kelly for six games and Austin for five on Thursday, but both players were in uniform after filing appeals.
