Updates with new top. Not even a 45-minute rain delay could disturb Porcello.

Porcello had struck out four and walked none. The game had gone deep enough to be considered official by that point and the Red Sox had the lead.

Porcello (3-0) allowed no runs on just two hits over the seven frames, striking out six. He had six strikeouts and no walks.

"It seemed like he threw everything where he wanted to throw it", Boston first baseman Mitch Moreland said. "Rick's great. He was on display tonight".

"I can't say something specific, but we've been working [Sanchez and hitting coach Marcus Thames] very hard", Sanchez said through a translator before that game. "Honestly, it wasn't a big deal at all".

"I knew [Thursday] morning whenever I woke up, I knew it [Wednesday] night before I went to sleep".

Kelly, Austin, Boston manager Alex Cora and NY third base coach Phil Nevin also were fined. "I'm three starts in, we're 12 games in, a lot of baseball to be played, but definitely want to continue to build off this start".

But Judge got New York's first hit in the seventh, and Giancarlo Stanton followed with a single. As long as his lineup does their part to keep him in the game, Porcello has been about as good as it gets over the last three seasons.

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. He threw 99 pitches in seven innings.

The Indians beat the Tigers for the 11th straight time as Francisco Lindor hit a leadoff homer and a two-run double in a 9-3 rout of Detroit. However, he didn't receive much run support in those outings so the Red Sox probably wouldn't have won anyway.

"Kind of just one of those nights", Gray said. "I was scuffling to find the zone and it didn't go our way".

Stanton overran a ball down the left field line, turning an innocuous pop fly into a ground-rule double. Nunez advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored when Sandy Leon singled to right.

Up Next: The Red Sox (10-2) kick off a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles (5-8) starting on Friday night at Fenway Park. The Yankees activated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment. The X-rays were negative and he was diagnosed with a wrist contusion. Kelly waved Austin at him, and things quickly got out of hand. The plunking came a day after Yankees utilityman Tyler Austin charged the mound after getting hit by a Joe Kelly pitch to spark a benches-clearing brawl. Each player appealed their punishments, and they are eligible to play while their appeals are considered. After walking Gregorius to load the bases, Sanchez cleared them with a double, cutting the Sox's lead to 6-3 while spelling the end of Walden's night.
