Boston's Porcello through 6 no-hit innings

Boston's Porcello through 6 no-hit innings

Aaron Judge broke up Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello's no-hitter with a single in the seventh inning on Thursday night.

Excuse him. Porcello had been waiting a long time for this, and we aren't referring to the 45-minute rain delay between the fifth and sixth innings. And after Aaron Hicks swung through it, ending the top of the seventh inning and leaving two New York Yankees teammates on base, Porcello let out a shout as he walked away from the mound.

The Yankees' defense couldn't make the right choices in the second and third inning of the game.

The Yankees still have not been held hitless since six Astros did it to them on June 11, 2003 at the previous Yankee Stadium.

The next series between the two will be in New York May 8-10. Porcello took a no-hitter into the seventh-he lost his ideal game in the fourth by hitting Giancarlo Stanton-before finally yielding a leadoff double to Aaron Judge. Last year, an extraordinarily dumb saga that started with Manny Machado's apparently innocent overslide into Dustin Pedroia didn't end before the Orioles hit Mookie Betts with a pitch even though Betts, at that point, had played no role whatsoever in the spat. Then Sanchez ripped a bases-clearing double, cutting the Red Sox's lead to three runs.

"I just feel like me", Porcello said.

Yankees starter Sonny Gray (1-1) was pulled after a leadoff single by Moreland in the fourth. "But I just wanted him to know that it was a bad slide, and I think everyone on the field knows that it was, and I think he knows that now, too". He batted runs in on a sacrifice fly in the second inning and a groundout in the third. "Scuffling to find the zone, didn't execute very well and made it hard all the way around". X-rays came back negative, but wrist injuries can linger.

Benintendi hit a grounder right at Wade, whose throw to home got past Sanchez and allowed Leon to score. Cora said LHP David Price, who left Wednesday's game in the first inning with tingling in his pitching hand, felt good playing catch Thursday and could start Monday against Baltimore.

- Marcus Walden, who was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day, pitched a scoreless eighth but found himself in quite a bit of trouble in the ninth. Austin slammed his bat into the ground and stormed the mound, prompting both benches to clear in the biggest brawl of the Major League Baseball season thus far.

Austin, Kelly, Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle and third base coach Phil Nevin were ejected.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees brought some snarl back to their storied rivalry this week, and it's a welcome change from the past few years of genteel, gentlemanly back and forth.
