From MLB.com:

A lot had gone on between the Red Sox and Tigers over the past two nights by the time Kevin Youkilis was belted in the back by an 89-mph pitch by Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello in the bottom of the second inning on Tuesday.

Perhaps spurred on by the tension of the moment, Youkilis immediately charged the mound and threw his helmet toward Porcello. Youkilis and Porcello then dragged each other to the ground. From there, both benches and bullpens emptied in a game the Red Sox went on to win, 7-5.
