Bans for Tigers, Yankees after base-brawl
Two of baseball’s biggest hitters were suspended yesterday after taking some menacing swings with their fists. Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was banned for seven games and New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez handed a four-game ban for their actions on a fight-filled afternoon at Comerica Park. Major League Baseball handed out the penalties one day after the Yankees and Tigers got into a trio of beanball-related clashes during Detroit’s 10-6 victory. Also suspended were Tigers reliever Alex Wilson, New York catcher Austin Romine and manager Brad Ausmus.
