HP Umpire Jordan Baker ejected Tigers P Matthew Boyd and Twins 3B Miguel Sano (Throwing At & Fighting) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Tigers-Twins game. With one out and none on, pitcher Boyd threw a first-pitch fastball behind batter Sano, resulting in a bench-clearing incident during which Sano threw a punch at Tigers catcher James McCann. Replays indicate the pitch was located significantly inside and head-high, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Tigers were leading, 3-2. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
