Detroit Tigers: Implications moving forward of potential suspensions from win over Yankees
The hurler hit James McCann in the head with a pitch to lead off the bottom half of the frame.
The dugouts emptied again following this.
In the end, Betances was ejected, making way for David Robertson, who hit John Hicks in the hand with a pitch that simply ran inside too much.
That incident didn’t draw another benches-clearing incident, but it did give the Tigers runners on first and second with no outs.
Continuing with the strange events, JaCoby Jones tried to bunt over the runners, but pulled back his bunt attempts on all four of the pitches Robertson threw him.
Jones took first on a walk, and came around to score on the next play on a bases-clearing double by Jose Iglesias.
That would give the Detroit Tigers the lead for good, but not before Alex Wilson plunked Todd Frazier with one out in the top of the eighth.
That was the last of the commotion from a benches-clearing standpoint as the Tigers held on for a 10-6 win.
James McCann put the finishing touches on the victory with a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth.
Overall, there were eight different ejections. Detroit manager Brad Ausmus and Yankees bench coach Rob Thompson were also tossed.
