BOSTON -- The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry has seen more than its fair share of testy moments over the years, and Sunday's 8-5 Yankees victory at Fenway Park provided yet another.
Umpires issued warnings to both benches in the eighth inning after Red Sox reliever Edward Mujica hit Jacoby Ellsbury -- who was 4-for-4 at that point -- in the backside on a 3-0 fastball. The hit-by-pitch appeared to anger multiple players on the Yankees bench, including pitcher CC Sabathia, who began approaching the top of the dugout before manager Joe Girardi moved him back down the stairs.
