Kahnle was immediately thrown out by home plate ump Carlos Torres.
NY reliever Tommy Kahnle and manager Joe Girardi had just been ejected after Kahnle threw a pitch behind Cabrera.
Romine's brother, Andrew, is a member of the Tigers. Cabrera had taken exception to almost getting hit by a pitch, then as play was about to resume, Cabrera approached Romine and they jawed at each other. Girardi was incensed that Kahnle was ejected without a warning. Romine took off his catcher's mask, and something was said that got Cabrera angry.
The drama started when Michael Fulmer hit Gary Sanchez with a pitch in the fifth inning. While both benches cleared and there was a lot wrestling, the initial indication was that no one was seriously injured.
