Alex Rodriguez received more than boos at Fenway Park over the weekend. In the Sunday night game Ryan Dempster hit him with a pitch during his first at-bat. After throwing behind A-Rod on the first pitch, he threw two more inside before hitting him on the elbow. After both teams were given warnings, Manager Joe Girardi was ejected for arguing.

A-Rod would get revenge in the 6th inning when he hit a solo homer off Dempster. Later that inning Brett Gardner had a three run triple giving the Yanks the lead and a 9-6 win. After the game Dempster answered questions about the game and hitting A-Rod.
