Ramirez was plunked with one out in the first inning Thursday, the night after the benches cleared twice and a brawl broke out in New York's 10-7 win at Fenway Park. Boston slugger Hanley Ramirez departed with a bruised wrist after he was hit by a pitch in the first, but everyone stayed in their respective dugouts. Many managers, especially in damp, cold conditions early in the season, are hesitant to send a starting pitcher back out after a rain delay as a precaution against injury. Unfortunately, Aaron Judge ended the no-hit bid with a leadoff double, followed up by an infield single by Stanton.
Sanchez got NY on the board with a three-run double to center off Marcus Walden in the ninth. The Red Sox won 6-3 and won the series 2-1, making the Sox record 10-2 and the Yankees 6-7. He quickly put the Yankees in a six-run hole in what became a 6-3 loss.
"Day-to-day. He was pretty sore", Cora said, as seen on NESN's postgame coverage.
In another quirk, the Yankees on Friday night will face Detroit pitcher Mike Fiers, who hit Stanton flush in the face with an 88-mph fast late in the 2014 season, sending him to the hospital with a broken nose, cheek and orbital bone, a broken incisor and a half-dozen chipped teeth. He was replaced by Mitch Moreland, who singled in his first two at-bats.
He continued: "Everybody is out here trying to play the game and make a living for themselves and their families".
"It feels good", said Porcello, who has a 1.83 ERA through three starts. Thursday night's performance was not enough to worry Boone, but Gray is a big part of the Yankees' plan. "Scuffling to find the zone, didn't execute very well and made it hard all the way around".

Warren tweeted : "Delighted to announce @tyson_fury has signed a promotional deal with us". "I'm the fittest I've ever been". My timing and reflexes are better than I have ever been. "He will be my easiest fight", says Fury of AJ. "He can't land.
Gray walked Jackie Bradley Jr. and Brock Holt and Mookie Betts hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly. He left trailing by 6-0 without having retired a batter in the fourth - the second time in three starts Gray has failed to get an out in the fifth inning. An errant throw home from Yankees second baseman Tyler Wade, who opted for a daring attempt at tossing out the lead-runner, Sandy Leon, skipped by Gary Sanchez in the second inning, leading to Boston's third run. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment.
After the game, both sides denied any wrongdoing - Austin said his slide was clean and Kelly said he didn't hit Austin on objective - but Major League Baseball obviously wasn't buying that. After that hot start, the '52 Red Sox wound up finishing 76-78.
Austin got beaned at the plate by Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly later in the game, leading to both benches clearing and players being taken to the ground. Each player appealed his punishment and remains eligible to play until the process is complete.
