WFAN and WEEI in Boston swapped play-by-play announcers for one inning during Thursday night's Yankees-Red Sox game -- and it turned out to be an eventful inning.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam. Longtime Red Sox announcer Joe Castiglione joined Suzyn Waldman in the WFAN booth, while Yankees play-by-play icon John Sterling sat in with Tim Neverett on WEEI's broadcast. It was part of the "Rivalry in the Booth."

Listen to some excerpts of the broadcast in the video above.

The grand slam put the Yankees up 6-4, but the Red Sox went on to win 11-6 and clinch their third consecutive American League East championship
