On Wednesday night, a brawl was started by the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox due to a hit by pitch. One day later, another hit by pitch happened in their series finale.
Hanley Ramírez, the Red Sox’s designated hitter, left the game in the first inning after being hit by a pitch thrown from Yankees pitcher Sonny Gray. The pitch — which did not appear to be intentional — was up-and-in and hitting Ramírez on the wrist.
After being hit by the pitch, Ramírez was clearly in a lot of pain, as he backed out of the dug our. He even shook his hand down in an attempt to help with the pain.
According to the team, he suffered a right wrist contusion. The X-rays were negative.
Both teams were then given warnings by home plate umpire Chris Guccione. He attempted to calm down both teams and not have a brawl for the second straight night.
With a warning, if another incident happens, the player will be ejected.
