Yankees have new rally cry after debacle in Detroit

Yankees have new rally cry after debacle in Detroit

In the home half of the sixth inning, Tommy Kahnle a reliever for the Yankees threw a pitch that sailed behind Cabrera.

Twitter debated the winners of the fight between New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine and Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera during their August 24 afternoon game. Many other players from both sides joined in.

Gary Sanchez after clubbing his fourth homerun of the series was plunked in the hip by Detroit Tigers' pitcher, Michael Fulmer.

"Sanchez is going to wear it", the Hall of Famer told MLB Network (via the New York Daily News) after the game that featured three separate bench-clearing incidents and saw a total of eight players, managers and coaches ejected. Yankees' manager Joe Girardi was tossed because of the lack of warning before Kahnle's ejection.

The benches cleared again in the seventh inning after Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances hit James McCann in the head with a 98 miles per hour fastball, the most risky moment in this entire feud.

Cabrera and Romine were both ejected.

"That last one was uncalled for", Frazier said of being hit by a pitch in the eighth.

"You don't see games like this very often, for good reason, because of injury concerns", said Detroit manager Brad Ausmus, who drew one of the ejections.

NY has much more at stake when it comes to potential suspensions, as they are now 4.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox for the top spot in the American League East, while the Tigers are not even close to sniffing a playoff spot. "I was cool with that", Cabrera said. "I said, 'This isn't about you.' And then he pushed me". Yankees catcher Austin Romine faced off with Cabrera, the two exchanged words, Romine took off his mask, Cabrera violently shoved Romine and as Romine was backpedaling Cabrera threw several punches. 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.

The drama wasn't finished there, as in the following inning, the benches would clear again. Cabrera gave him a two-handed push.

Detroit reliever Alex Wilson was tossed after hitting NY third baseman Todd Frazier with a pitch in the eighth. It did not appears that Betances threw at James McCann on goal as it was a crucial spot in the game and he does have a tendency to be erratic. Both benches cleared and the bullpens emptied. With Frazier being restrained, it seemed that the focus turned to the tense argument between Brett Gardner and Jose Iglesias.
