During the game between the Yankees and Tigers, there were three separate bench-clearing incidents. Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle was ejected in the sixth inning after hitting Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera with a pitch.
Cabrera and Romine were seen arguing back and forth at home plate before Cabrera shoved Romine, leading to a brawl between the two teams. A total of four players from both teams received suspensions, including Cabrera, Romine, Gary Sanchez and Alex Wilson.
Romine initially received a two-game suspension before his appeal got it reduced to one game. The 28-year-old has hit .220/.276/.293 in 71 games.
The Yankees enter Friday's game against the Rangers with a 75-64 record and a 2.5-game lead over the Minnesota Twins for the top wild-card spot in the American League. They trail the Boston Red Sox by 3.5 games for the American League East lead.
