Update (10:18 PM EST): Here’s video of the altercation, via MLB.com.

TV cameras caught a disagreement between Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias and catcher James McCann, among others. McCann, it seems, was upset that Iglesias appeared to give up on a Rusney Castillo single with two outs in the sixth inning. The Red Sox scored two runs on the next play, a double by Xander Bogaerts, which increased the Tigers’ deficit to 7-2.

Iglesias and McCann were seen yelling at each other, and Iglesias shoved McCann. The two were separated by teammates Nick Castellanos and Ian Kinsler. Anthony Gose had some words with Iglesias in the dugout later.

It’ll be interesting to see what comes of this after the game.
