Andrew Romine on Tigers' bench for Thursday's matinée

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

In the sixth, When Kahnle threw a first-pitch fastball behind Cabrera that sailed to the backstop, Torres immediately ejected Kahnle, which sent Girardi sprinting out of the dugout to protest.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi appeared to be angry about Kahnle being tossed without a warning and argued the ejection before he was also ejected.

Gary Sanchez, the Yankees' catcher who was DHing, homered early in the game.

That's when both benches cleared and met at home-plate, with players either clamoring to get a few licks in on the either side or teammates desperately trying to pull others away from the melee.

Cabrera & Austin Romine were ejected and suspensions/fines are sure to follow. In the 8th inning, Tigers reliever Alex Wilson hit Todd Frazier with a pitch.

The Detroit Tigers don't seem to have much fight in them these days ... unless, of course, you were watching Thursday afternoon's wild game against the New York Yankees at Comerica Park.

"Then Brad Ausmus is going to say, 'F-U, ' to one of my players", Girardi said. When I got back to home plate, I tell him, 'You got any (bleeping) problem with me?' He said, 'Why?' I said because I try to calm (things) down and you try to act tough.

For the month, Sanchez is hitting.311 with 10 homers and 21 RBIs in 20 games, ridiculous numbers that are similar to his August 2016 stats (.389, 11 HR, 21 RBIs, 24 games) and Judge's June this season (.324, 10 HR, 25 RBIs, 28 games). Twice more the dugouts emptied in the next two innings, a sign that the Yankees and Tigers had some anger to work out. About why the fighting was necessary in the first place, Girardi noted that if the umpires were going to put things in the teams' hands then they were going to protect themselves accordingly - essentially noting that once the umpires failed to do their jobs it was up to the players completely. Betances was ejected and the benches cleared again.

It was the ninth career ejection for Cabrera and first since July 26, 2016 at Cleveland.

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.

Martinez is no stranger to altercations, including during the 2003 American League Championship Series, when he threw Yankees assistant Don Zimmer to the ground during a brawl.

Stanton hit his latest homer before Miami rallied from a five-run deficit.

When Miguel Cabrera came to bat in the 6th inning, the Yankees had revenge on their minds. Cabrera was ejected after attacking Romine.

Jose Iglesias gave the Tigers a 9-6 lead when he hit a three-run double in the seventh off David Robertson, who had relieved Betances.

If you thought that was the end of it, wrong. Betances said he didn't hit McCann on goal, and McCann seemed to agree afterward.
