Torii Hunter Headbumps Ump; Mea Kulpa Earns Dual Ejection

Final Score in Detroit: Angels 4, Tigers 2...

Okay okay okay, Torii Hunter was expressing how bad a strike call was to sight-challenged home plate umpire Ron Kulpa and the brim of his plastic batting helmet tapped against the ump's thick skull. The whiner umpire used this ridiculous pretext to toss the gold gloving all starring community activisting rock and rolling hula dula face of the franchising cleanup hitting Right Fielder.

Immediately following Hunter's ejection, manager Mike Scioscia's on-field protestation earned him an early shower too.

Hunter had homered in the first inning to give Jered Weaver a 2-Run cushion.

Peter Bourjos earned his first major league RBI in the 2nd inning.

Weaver struck out 9 Tigers and allowed 1 ER in 7 IP.

Fernando Rodney and Brian Fuentes each pitched a scoreless inning of relief.
