Joe Girardi was one of many, many people who got ejected from the multiple fights between Yankees and Tigers players on Thursday afternoon. "They started to argue with the umpire and I said to Romine to calm down. Hopefully when the video comes out and they see everyone's actions, the proper (suspensions) are handled accordingly", Castellanos said.
At that point, it was a 6-3 Tigers lead, but NY rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh.
McCann would later homer in the eighth inning as the Tigers broke the deadlock to win 10-6.
Severino struck out two in a flawless, 11-pitch first inning and allowed his first hit with two outs in the second, a soft liner to right by Victor Martinez.
You'll see Verlander get mad, say something to Martinez and walk away, causing Martinez to come after him, until he's held back.
Romine and Cabrera were ultimately ejected from the game for starting the melee.
Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez crushed his fourth home run of the series in the 4th inning off of Michael Fulmer. "And he said something like, 'You want to fight?'". First he found Cabrera, who already had several bodies on top of him, and delivered a punch somewhere around Cabrera's head. Cabrera is a future Hall of Famer, while Romine should probably be out of the big leagues by now.
In the bottom of the next inning however, another Yankees reliever-Dellin Betances-plunked another Detroit batter.
Betances was ejected, as well as Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson. Again, the benches clear, but just like the second one, no brawl. "And he doesn't take that into the offense, and I think that's a key to good hitting and a good professional athlete".
If you thought that was the end of it, wrong.
Then the Tigers went for more retaliation, with Alex Wilson hitting Todd Frazier. He hit John Hicks with a pitch with two outs and Andrew Romine, Austin's brother, singled to right.
CLEVELAND - Jay Bruce and Francisco Lindor homered, Yandy Diaz had four hits, and Cleveland continued its domination of Chris Sale with a victory over Boston.
On July 31, at Yankee Stadium, Tigers outfielder Mikie Mahtook was twice hit - seemingly unintentionally - by Yankees pitchers. Sanchez has given credit to A-Rod with giving him some of his wisdom and since the day the two met Sanchez has batted.340 with 8 home runs and 19 RBIs over a 12-game run.
