New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers Involved In Bench-Clearing Brawl

New York Yankees: Playoff Pitching Scenario
Gary Sanchez propels Yankees past Tigers, 10-2

NY reliever Tommy Kahnle threw at Detroit star Miguel Cabrera, which led to his immediate ejection-along with his manager, Joe Girardi. And in the sixth, Tigers star Miguel Cabrera stepped to the plate and promptly got a pitch thrown behind his back.

Romine flung off his face mask and Cabrera shoved him with both hands before throwing a series of punches as Romine wrestled him to the ground.

Sanchez had homered earlier in the contest his fourth home run in the three-game series between the teams. He allowed just three hits and surrendered Minnesota's lone run on a Byron Buxton home run in the sixth inning. Kahnle Yankees manager Joe Girardi were both ejected. Yankees reliever Dellin Betances was ejected an inning later for hitting James McCann with a pitch.

Cabrera and Romine were both ejected.

There are already a lot of Major League Baseball rumors about the suspensions that could get handed out for members of the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers are in Chicago this weekend for series against the White Sox and the Yankees are in NY hosting the Seattle Mariners. "I was cool. They wanted to avenge Gary Sanchez, so I was cool with that", Cabrera said.

"I don't know what he was thinking to be honest with you, " Todd Frazier said.

Then David Robertson came in and hit John Hicks with a pitch. Again, the benches clear, but just like the second one, no brawl. Betances said he didn't hit McCann on goal, and McCann said afterward: "I don't think it was intentional".

But the dust briefly seemed to settle - until a few heated words between Cabrera and the Yankees catcher behind him, Austine Romine, exploded into a flurry of misplaced haymakers.

It won't be perfectly clear until Verlander and Martinez address it themselves, perhaps Friday in Chicago, but the popular theory is Verlander and Castellanos were none too happy with Martinez's chummy behavior with the Yankees - and perhaps with Sanchez - during the scuffle after McCann was hit. The good news for the Yankees is that with Boston's loss to Cleveland their deficit in the AL East race stayed at 4.5 games, and they remain comfortably ahead of the field in the race for a Wild Card spot. According to Delia Enriquez of Bronx Pinstripes, Sanchez threw punches during the brawl and it could earn him a suspension.
