With JaCoby injured & tempers flaring, Tigers beat Twins, 5-4

Post  Admin on Sun Apr 23, 2017 7:42 am

Twins slugger Miguel Sano punched Tigers catcher James McCann in the mask during a bench-clearing scrap in the 5th inning before Detroit held on to defeat Minnesota for a 5-4 victory.

Detroit outfielder JaCoby Jones was nailed in the mouth by a 90 mph fastball from Minnesota reliever Justin Haley in the 3rd inning and left the game under his own power.  Two innings later, Tigers' starting pitcher Matthew Boyd threw behind Sano, who pointed his finger at the pitcher and yelled out toward the mound.

McCann intervened and Sano swung with a right hand & shoved McCann away.  It appeared Sano connected with McCann's mask and perhaps his chest protector.  The finale of this three game series concludes this Sunday afternoon at 2 pm.
