Jones hit in face by pitch, Tigers and Twins scrap on field

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Not long after Detroit outfielder JaCoby Jones got hit in the face by a pitch , the Tigers and Minnesota Twins were nose-to-nose on the field.

Twins slugger Miguel Sano punched Tigers catcher James McCann in the chest protector and mask during a bench-clearing scrap in the fifth inning of Detroit's 5-4 victory Saturday.

Jones was hit in the mouth by a 90 mph fastball from Minnesota reliever Justin Haley in the third and left the game under his own power. Two innings later, Detroit starter Matthew Boyd threw behind Sano, who pointed his finger toward the pitcher and yelled out at the mound.
