Alex Rodriquez was hit by a pitch by Red Sox pitcher Brandon Arroyo and A Rod and catcher Jason Varitek started fighting and the benches emptied. Arroyo was also tackled by 4 or 5 Yankees players. I'm not sure if there will be any ejections, they're still sorting it out.

At least we know the merge thread function is working.


It's only the 3rd inning in this game at Fenway, there could be more fireworks.

Yankees and Red Sox brawl again

By JIMMY GOLEN, AP Sports Writer
July 24, 2004
BOSTON (AP) -- A bench-clearing brawl broke out between the Yankees and Boston Red Sox on Saturday after Bronson Arroyo hit New York third baseman Alex Rodriguez with a pitch in the top of the third inning.

Rodriguez stared down Arroyo as he started walking toward first, and then catcher Jason Varitek got between them. After some jawing, about 40 feet up line, the Varitek pushed Rodriguez in the face, and the dugouts and bullpens emptied.

Several scrums erupted, with Gabe Kapler battling Yankees starter Tanyon Sturtze, soon joined by Boston's Trot Nixon and David Ortiz. Sturtze was bleeding from the left ear.

Varitek and Rodriguez were ejected from the game by plate umpire Bruce Froemming. New York, which began the day 9 1/2 games ahead of Boston in the AL East, led 3-0 at the time.

The teams also brawled last fall at Fenway Park during Game 3 of the AL championship series, when Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez threw 72-year-old Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer to the ground.

In 1976, New York's Lou Piniella collided with Boston catcher Carlton Fisk at home plate in Yankee Stadium and came up swinging. In the ensuing fight, Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee was body-slammed and wound up with a broken collarbone.

red sox win it 11-10 scoring 3 9th inning runs including a walk off home run by bill mueller, you got to think that this was a game the sox HAD to win...i believe that this game will give them a tremendous lift in their battle to get back with the yankees,if they had lost this emotion filled game i think their season would have been over

Mariano Rivera got tagged for 3 runs in the bottom of the ninth and blew his second save this season and took the loss as well. Pretty rare to get 3 from the stingy Rivera but the Red Sox really needed this game and they found a way to win it.

In addition to the other 2 ejections, BoSox skipper Terry Francona was tossed in the 5th inning for arguing a fielder's choice call.

I just read that Bill Mueller's walk-off homer was only the second homerun given up by Rivera all year, in 48 appearances.

Big Finish: The Red Sox, in jeopardy of a freefall, made a stand by coming back at the end of a crazy game that included a bizarre rain delay; a bench-clearing fight; an inning that amassed 67 minutes, 89 pitches and 10 runs; comebacks from both teams; and a game-winning, two-run walk-off homer, hit by Boston's Bill Mueller off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. The Red Sox win will have little bearing on the standings, with the Yankees leading Boston by nine games in the loss column in the AL East, but the Red Sox needed a spark and this might have been it.

Big Absence: Pedro Martinez has been very brave when he is throwing a baseball at hitters standing in the batter's box, but for the second straight time, Martinez was among the last players to emerge from the Red Sox dugout during a brawl with the Yankees. Curt Schilling, on the other hand, was among the first to reach A-Rod and Varitek.

Big Unit: Steinbrenner's pursuit of Randy Johnson is frenzied. Diamondbacks owner Jerry Colangelo could probably get himself written into Steinbrenner's will, if he played his cards right, or at least have part of Florida deeded to him. And Johnson could probably get a 101-year extension, if he wants it, by trying to push for a trade to the Yankees. There might not be a comparable situation in Steinbrenner's 31-year ownership, when his team had such a clear need for a particular player -- and Steinbrenner is completely at the mercy of a Colangelo, whom he offended 2 ½ years ago by nudging David Wells into breaking an oral agreement with Arizona.

Big Downpour: Fenway Park was pounded by rain overnight, and reportedly, the outlook for play on Saturday was so poor that some of the Yankees' boarded the team bus, in anticipation of a postponement. But the game was played, on an unusual blustery summer day.

Tomorrow night's game should be good, it's the Sunday Night Baseball game televised nationally at 8pm EST. Jose Contreras has the ball for the Yanks and it'll be Derek Lowe on the mound for the Sox.

Wow, what a game. I have to make sure to watch the rubber match of the series on ESPN tomorrow night.

I missed today's game but just saw the highlights on Sportscenter, typical Yankees vs Redsox. A Rod was fighting a guy with a full face mask on, if he watched hockey he would know the first thing to do is rip off your opponent's mask.

For baseball in July, no doubt.


Then again, there's always a playoff-like atmosphere when these two teams meet.

It's the first I heard it too, but CBS Sportsline says the same thing....

"Several scrums erupted, with Gabe Kapler battling Yankees starter Tanyon Sturtze, soon joined by Nixon and David Ortiz. Kapler and Kenny Lofton also were ejected. "
