The overall value of all 30 Major League Baseball teams jumped more than 7% to an average estimated value of $1.645 billion this year in the rankings released Wednesday.
The 7th inning brawl was a result of Boston's Joe Kelly drilling New York's Tyler Austin.
Sanchez drove in four runs and Stanton had three hits and three RBI. In the first inning of the contest at Fenway Park, the Yankees ran over Boston's starter.
Sanchez surpassed his entire production all season tonight with three hits and four runs batted in. The bullpen was torched for nine runs in the sixth, though only three were earned, to put the game away. Rick Porcello is scheduled to take the mound for Boston and will be opposed by Sonny Gray. At the time, it gave the Buffalo Bisons a 3-0 lead. He finished with three hits and as many runs allowed with a pair of strikeouts over his two innings of work.
Boston has had a hot start under new manager Alex Cora.
It was all good except for the fact Austin came in with his left cleat high, driving his foot into the back of shortstop Brock Holt's right cleat.
Pirates 8, Cubs 5: Felipe Vazquez entered with the bases loaded and a five-run lead in the eighth inning, and he notched his fourth save, helping Pittsburgh spoil Chicago's home opener.
Strasburg (2-1) gave up three hits and struck out eight while walking two.
Phillies 6, Reds 1: Aaron Nola pitched eight solid innings, Scott Kingery hit a grand slam and Philadelphia defeated host Cincinnati. They have started the season by taking four straight series, including this one over the last-place Marlins. He went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's blowout victory but he'll sit against Tanaka.
Junior Guerra (1-0) allowed one run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings in his first start this season. And despite the struggles of the Yankees' lineup, they still have more firepower than what the Rays have, which is whom Price faced in his first two starts this season.
