Miguel Cabrera gets chippy with Indians dugout in first inning

Publish date:

Cleveland,Ohio- In the first inning, home plate umpire Clint Fagan warned both benches as the top of the first inning concluded.

Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer, threw a first-pitch fastball inside to Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

Cabrera immediately looked to the Indians dugout and had to get pulled back. Indians manager Terry Francona and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus came out to get an explanation from the umpires between the first and second inning.

This all goes back to a September 18 game last year in Cleveland, a day after Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco, was hit in the hand by an Ian Kinsler line drive off of his hand. Bauer went on to hit three Tigers batters the following day.
