The Red Sox and Yankees have maintained relatively peaceful relations on the field in recent years. But that wasn't the case for their South Atlantic League affiliates last night.

Greenville starter Miguel Celestino hit Charleston leadoff hitter Slade Heathcott with a pitch. The Yankees prospect then punched catcher Christian Vazquez, clearing the benches.

Heathcott and Vazquez were ejected along with two relievers who joined the ruckus, Garett Rau (Greenville) and Kelvin Perez (Charleston).
