Fulmer, Tigers try to stop Yankees in series finale

"It wasn't just coming from one spot, so that's really good to see".

Sanchez's drive in the first inning was estimated at almost 500 feet, and the NY catcher added another homer in the ninth to lead the Yankees to a 13-4 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Jacoby Ellsbury pinch-hit for Judge in the seventh inning.

Gary Sanchez hit a pair of two-run homers, including a mammoth blast in the first inning, for NY (67-57).

By game's end, Sanchez owned the Major League Baseball lead among catchers for home runs (25) and the AL lead in RBI (69), runs (61), on-base percentage (.349), slugging percentage (.536) and, consequently, OPS (.884).

Sanchez, who homered twice in Tuesday night's 13-4 rout of Detroit, made it 1-0 in the first with a two-out homer. Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann was charged with seven runs on nine hits including a pair of long balls over five innings to absorb the loss before Chad Bell gave up three runs over the final four frames.

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.

Cabrera and Romine were both ejected.

Romine's brother, Andrew, is a member of the Tigers.

Aroldis Chapman had just finished his warmup pitches, summoned from the bullpen after Tommy Kahnle had been ejected for throwing the first pitch of the at-bat behind Cabrera's back. With Romine's ejection, Sanchez had to move to catcher, meaning the Yankees lost their designated hitter.

Dellin Betances opened the bottom of the inning by drilling James McCann in the head with a 98-mph fastball and was ejected after a lengthy discussion by the umpires.

Brett Gardner appeared to go after Detroit manager Brad Ausmus, but Gardner stayed in the game, while Ausmus was tossed for Wilson's actions.

Betances and bench coach Rob Thompson were both eventually ejected. McCann stayed in the game.

David Robertson took over for Betances and promptly hit John Hicks, although everyone stayed in the game after that play. While the crowd of 32,622 booed loudly, nothing materialized there as Hicks slowly walked to first. According to a tweet from the team's official Twitter account, we know what the Tigers' batting order will look like against the Yankees.
