The 2016 A.L. Cy Young Award victor was brilliant Thursday night against the Yankees, turning in seven scoreless frames of two-hit ball in a 6-3 victory.

"I remember Carlos Beltran, he talked about him previous year and he felt his stuff was still there, but his changeup wasn't there", Cora said.

"It's frustrating because he's really important to us", Aaron Boone said.

"I knew (I was fine) this morning when I woke up, I knew it last night before I went to sleep", Price continued.

It wasn't just Thursday night that makes Gray look like a bad matchup against the Red Sox.

The Sox now welcome the Orioles for a four game series starting tonight.

The right-hander, who had allowed no more than two earned runs in any of his previous road starts, had a hard time with his command on a damp night.

For as long as I can remember, there was always something explosive about a Yankees Red Sox game. Porcello recorded the inning's first two outs before falling behind, 2-1, to Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner.

The error by Wade was the 13th by the Yankees in 13 games this season.

The 42-year-old Cora is in his first season as Red Sox manager, after playing for the team from 2005-08 as part of his 14-year Major League Baseball playing career. Austin has been suspended five games for charging the mound and fighting.

BOOM! Went Giancarlo Stanton's first swing with the Yankees, an opposite-field home run in Toronto.

Trying to hit Kelly, Austin instead tagged Red Sox third base coach Carlos Febles. It bounced over his head and over the side-wall for a ground-rule double and RBI.

"I had it as three or four rows in the seats".

"I was ready to defend myself. I can't say enough about the pitch mix he was putting down back there". He was replaced by Mitch Moreland.

Gray was supposed to be a No. 2-type starter, but he's pitching more like a No. 4 or 5 right now.

Asked Thursday if he felt he needed to talk with Cora to help quell a brouhaha that developed over gestures Cora made in Nevin's direction as the teams were separated in Wednesday's brawl, Nevin offered a reply that got reporters laughing. "It was just one of those nights".
