Sano & Boyd ejected after Boyd pitched behind Sano pic.twitter.com/m21DxM5J9M— That Dude (@cjzer0) April 22, 2017
Sano started at first base for the Twins on Saturday, and in the fifth inning Tigers starter Matthew Boyd threw a pitch behind him.
As tempers flared and benches cleared, Sano was restrained by home plate umpire Jordan Baker and Tigers catcher James McCann. McCann and Sano said something to each other, and as McCann put his glove in Sano’s face, Sano threw a punch at McCann.
Sano and Boyd were the only players ejected after the fracas.
