This Yankees-Tigers Brawl Was the Real Deal

Take notes, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor, this is what a fight looks like.

Twice more the dugouts emptied in the next two innings, a sign that the Yankees and Tigers had some anger to work out. Girardi put most of the blame on the umpiring crew for not warning both teams after Michael Fulmer hit Gary Sanchez with a pitch in the fifth inning - "if that's not intentional, I don't know what is".

Fulmer's delayed response was to drill Jacoby Ellsbury in the rear end with a fastball. However, that's just when the fireworks started.

The Yankees brought Aroldis Chapman in to face Cabrera, who responded by getting into it with Romine. Romine and Cabrera were both ejected. And this was just the beginning.

After the Yankees tied the game up, 6-6, in the top of the seventh, they sent in one of their top relievers, Dellin Betances, presumably to keep the Tigers at bay.

He added that several young players have a heap of pressure and responsibility thrown on them and no one is certain how they will handle such pressure, with often times there being ebbs and flows.

Tigers ace Justin Verlander?was also seen arguing with teammate Victor Martinez in the dugout during one of the skirmishes.

India were storming to another victory. "The board has been hugely supportive of everything that I do and what the players do". They were sensible, collected runs in singles and later on played their shots as they inched closer to the target.

Girardi is probably about to get fined a whole bunch for these comments, but something tells me he doesn't really care right at this moment. In 2014, while playing in Double-A, Sanchez was handed a give-game suspension for his team. He then started throwing punches. Betances said he didn't hit McCann on objective, and McCann seemed to agree afterward.

However, the fun was not over...

Betances was ejected as a result, per Mazzeo.

Variously, Girardi blamed the Tigers in general for, in his view, taking this to another level; the umpiring crew for not grabbing this whole thing by the horns; and his Detroit counterpart, Brad Ausmus, for directing naughty words toward Brett Gardner, who's never heard such talk.

"Miguel Cabrera was upset some of their guys got hit, " Girardi said of that series.

Detroit won the game 10-6, but it seemed the game and outcome were secondary. McCann also stayed in the game after being hit in the head, and he homered the following inning. Romine contested being thrown out, apparently feeling he had no choice but to fight back when Cabrera began jawing at him and pushing him.
