Hot Gary Sanchez has HR, 3 RBIs as Yanks rout Tigers again

Hot Gary Sanchez has HR, 3 RBIs as Yanks rout Tigers again

After that inning, Sanchez walked gingerly off the field, glancing twice at the Tigers dugout.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is the only player with a longer one this year — he hit a 495-footer in June. Both players were ejected.

An inning and a half later, Cabrera stepped to the plate against Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle, who struck out the first two batters of the sixth inning.

The two exchanged words before Cabrera pushed Romine and then delivered a punch, setting off a melee in which Romine tackled Cabrera to the ground.

With Martinez out, Miguel Cabrera will be the designated hitter and John Hicks will play first base.

This wasn't a let's-just-push-each-other baseball fight, these two were really going at it.

Few could ever forget the sensational run he had in August 2016, when Sanchez averaged roughly the same number of at-bats per homer as Babe Ruth in 1927, and almost powered his way to the doorstep of a Rookie of the Year trophy, which he ultimately lost out to Detroit starter Michael Fulmer. NY reliever Tommy Kahnle threw at Detroit star Miguel Cabrera, which led to his immediate ejection-along with his manager, Joe Girardi. The Yankees sent Aroldis Chapman in next.

Remember how the Washington Nationals perhaps cost themselves a World Series in 2012 when they put young ace Stephen Strasberg on an innings count of 160 and then stuck to it by not letting him pitch in the playoffs?

"I try to compete every time they give me the ball but when you go out there and see six runs, it's good", Severino said. Kahnle was in the middle of that too.

After order was restored about five minutes later, Romine became incensed all over again when crew chief Dana DeMuth ejected him. But the fireworks didn't stop there.

UPDATE: Holy moly, in the bottom of the seventh, an inning after the heat had died down, Dellin Betances came into the game and beaned Tigers catcher James McCann in the head with his second pitch.

Betances and bench coach Rob Thompson were both eventually ejected. Both benches cleared and, like any Thursday where people are at work starved for something to do to end their day, social media took notice. "He's not ready to go out there right now", manager Brad Ausmus said.
