Yankees Brawl Was Ugly But Good For Team Bonding

Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was suspended for seven games after setting off a series of brawls in Thursday's game against the New York Yankees.

Ausmus said he was most surprised by the light suspension given to Sanchez, who threw two punches at players pinned on the ground.

New York Yankees game, a massive brawl ensued after Miguel Cabrera threw punches at Yankees catcher Austin Romine.

Tigers pitcher Alex Wilson was also suspended for four games, for throwing a pitch at Todd Frazier after warnings were issued. Yankees first baseman Garrett Cooper and outfielder Clint Frazier received fines for entering the field while being on the disabled list.

Five players were ejected, along with both managers and the Yankees' bench coach. Unless appealed, all suspensions are scheduled to be effective tonight, when the Yankees are to host the Seattle Mariners and the Tigers are to visit the Chicago White Sox.

Girardi said he doesn't know who would serve as the Yankees' backup catcher with either Romine or Sanchez out. Sanchez was a loose cannon in the initial melee, landing free punches on Cabrera and Nicholas Castellanos, both of whom were defenseless at the time.

There were a total of eight ejections in the game.

All the punches have been thrown, but now the pain really starts. "When they started arguing with the umpire, I said to Romine, 'Calm down'". Wilson's actions have also lead Major League Baseball to suspend Tigers manager Brad Ausmus for one game. (Judge) is going to get away (with it)?

James McCann and Justin Upton homered for Detroit, and Gary Sanchez went deep for the Yankees, but that all became secondary on a day when the umpires had their hands full trying to maintain order.

Fulmer looked like he might be hurt after throwing that pitch, and he was checked by the trainer before staying in the game.

"With me hitting a guy in the leg, it's what I have to do and that's what I did", Wilson said.

Ausmus said his suspension is linked to Wilson's.
