On Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees battled for the second time in two nights, the benches cleared after Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly hit Tyler Austin as retaliation for a slide Boston took exception to earlier in the game.


Austin slammed his bat to the ground before charging the mound, and players from both teams charged into the action.

This was the second time the benches cleared in this game and the second major brawl of the day, as the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies got into it earlier.

Only this one is a bit more intense, as the natural rivalry between these two historic clubs adds to the flavor. Twitter had plenty to say about this particular brawl.
