Jered Weaver is carrying the Ace for the Angels quite well. Torii Hunter is carrying the team at the moment. It all added up to a taste of home cookin' giving the Angels a 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Manager Mike Scioscia was not around to see it, though, having been tossed by Home Plate Umpire Tim Timmons in the 6th inning over an argued pitch to Mike Napoli. The laughingly low pitch was called a strike by Timmons, who left his white cane back at Disneyland, but called the action over the plate like the Mad Hatter.
After the ejection, though, it was Gary Matthews Jr hollering Off With Their Heads when he belted a deeeeeep double to score Torii Hunter from 2nd base in the bottom of the 8th inning. Hunter had walked and taken 2nd on a deep flyball to left by Kendry Morales.
Matthews was almost the goat when he dropped a foul ball with 2 outs in the 9th, forcing Brian Fuentes to struggle for a few batters before getting a Timmons-wide strikeout to end the game.
