Miguel Cabrera Punches Yankees Catcher, Sparks Bench-Clearing Brawl
Thursday afternoon’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees was was anything but dull.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Miguel Cabrera could be seen squabbling back and forth with Yankees catcher Austin Romine. This was during a pitching change for the Yankees after pitcher Tommy Kahnle was ejected for hitting Cabrera with a pitch
Soon after the verbal squabbling began, Cabrera threw a punch at Romine, which caused a bench-clearing brawl at Comerica Park.
Both Cabrera and Romine were ejected from the game.
