Benches Clear, Tempers Flare In Detroit
Benches cleared in an afternoon contest between the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox. The Tigers retaliated after Chris Sale threw up and in to slugger Prince Fielder. Tigers hurler Luke Putkonen responded by trying to bean Alexei Ramirez which incited the benches to clear. Ramirez did his best “Tough Guy” impersonation but appeared afraid to go after Putkonen. Manager Jim Leyland got the heave hoe after a heated discussion with the umpires.
