Pedro Martinez endorsed the Red Sox pitcher who threw 98-mph heat at Tyler Austin's ribs Wednesday night, triggering a brawl that made 2018 feel like 2003.

Red Sox relief pitcher Joe Kelly, left, knocks down NY s Tyler Austin as they fight during the seventh inning.

Tension Wednesday began in the third inning when Yankees first baseman Tyler Austin slid into second baseman Brock Holt attempting to break up a double play. The benches cleared then as well, but mostly yelling ensued. But by the time reinforcements arrived, the fight had already fizzled.

We'll see if any bad blood remains towards Tyler Austin in the third game of the series, as Rick Porcello squares off against Sonny Gray.

Kelly came in to replace Matt Barnes in the top of the seventh frame. With that being said, this was a classic Red Sox-Yankee game.

He fooled Austin on a swinging strike on his first offering, before tossing a pitch way inside.

Austin charged the mound after he slammed down his bat and after Kelly waved to him to come fight. The following year, the Red Sox's Bronson Arroyo hit the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez with a pitch before Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek punched A-Rod in the face.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge stood in the middle of the action, acting as a peacemaker.

I was ready to defend myself.

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

One side says it was a good, clean slide meant to break up the chance for a double play. Martinez would have preferred Boston retaliate right there and not given Austin any thought that he was getting away scot-free.

"I think it's probably over with", Yankees manager Aaron Boone told The Athletic's Marc Carig.
