The Detroit Tigers were not only upset with the New York Yankees. In fact the high emotions spilled over into the Tigers dugout. Detroit’s veteran ace Justin Verlander and Victor Martinez got heated with each other. Dispersing words to actions, Nick Castellanos ened up in the middle. Martinez, who was being held back by Castellanos. Was reacting to Verlander’s alleged middle finger taunt that left Martinez upset.
