The Tigers-Athletics Game Finished Up With Grant Balfour and Victor Martinez Cursing Each Other Out

In today’s early game, Oakland beat Detroit 6-3 to take a 2-1 series lead. Also, this happened (NSFW audio):

That’s Grant Balfour on the mound and Victor Martinez at the plate. It’s not totally clear why Balfour had such a problem with Martinez looking at him, especially with his team up by three runs, but that’s baseball for you: a lot of faux-toughness that ends with both benches clearing and no one throwing a punch.

Here’s the official MLB video, which features bleeps in the place of curse words and the benches clearing:

There were no ejections. Martinez ended up lining out to right, and Balfour retired the rest of the side to close out the game.
