Yankees Battle Tigers in Detroit, Literally

Miguel Cabrera and Gary Sanchez headline a list of four players and one coach that received suspensions for their part in the Yankees-Tigers brawl Thursday.

Once slugger Miguel Cabrera wrestled Yankees catcher Austin Romine to the ground at home plate, an afternoon game at Comerica Park collapsed into total chaos.

Yankees manager Girardi and Kahnle were ejected before the brawl, ESPN reported.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was suspended four games for fighting, including throwing punches. Many other players from both sides joined in.

Yankees reliever Dellin Betances and bench coach Robby Thomson were ejected in the bottom of the seventh after Betances drilled Tigers catcher James McCann in the helmet with a 98 miles per hour fastball.

Detroit starter Michael Fulmer also avoided any punishment despite hitting Sanchez with a pitch after he homered off the right-hander. Alex Wilson, Manager Brad Ausmus were later ejected.

The league office has spoken in the wake of Thursday's brouhaha between the Tigers and Yankees.




The New York Yankees lost a game last that very much resembled one played during the Second Season, when good pitching and timely hitting spells victory.

Then, with the hosts ahead 6-3 and Aroldis Chapman set to resume Cabrera's at-bat, Carbrera and NY catcher Austin Romine exchanged words.

In a press statement, Major League Baseball said the first baseman got the suspension "for inciting" the incident that saw him throw punches at Yankees catcher Austin Romine.

Aroldis Chapman had just finished his warmup pitches, summoned from the bullpen after Tommy Kahnle had been ejected for throwing the first pitch of the at-bat behind Cabrera's back.

McCann would later homer in the eighth inning as the Tigers broke the deadlock to win 10-6. So, it would not surprise the Yankees to see both of their catchers, Sanchez and Romine, suspended. The benches cleared for a third time. Jose Iglesias' bases-clearing double in the bottom of the seventh made it 9-6.

The Yankees hoped to be able to stagger the suspensions so they didn't lose both catchers at the same time.
