Detroit Tigers snap slump, beat Royals 3-2

AP, KANSAS CITY, Missouri

Kennedy hit Los Angeles starter Zack Greinke with a pitch, a retaliation throw that triggered the fracas that nearly spilled into the stands.

An inning earlier, Greinke hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back and both teams came charging onto the field, but it broke up quickly with no punches thrown. That was payback for Kennedy hitting Puig. The ball deflected off his shoulder and struck Puig on the nose.
