Red Sox, Yankees Minor League Clubs Revive Rivalry With Twitter Jabs


Minor league affiliates for the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees kicked the organizations’ rivalry up a notch Tuesday.

The Single-A Charleston RiverDogs (Yankees) faced off against the Greenville Drive (Red Sox), and they apparently were in no mood for music while they were down 4-2 to the Red Sox’s club in the middle of the eighth inning. The RiverDogs took to Twitter to complain about Greenville’s traditional eighth-inning jam.

The Drive weren’t going to go down without a fight, and they took the argument from zero to 100 real quick.

Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner.

Greenville really got the last laugh, too, as the club held back the RiverDogs in the ninth for a 4-2 win.
