LA Angels defeat Detroit Tigers 4-2. The Angels won a game! Jered Weaver (W, 11-7) tossed seven innings of two-run ball to get the Angels back into the left side of the ledger. Torii Hunter with a two-run homer in the first inning and another two-spot in the second inning off of Justin Verlander (L, 12-7) gave Weaver all the run support he needed. Hunter and manager Mike Scioscia were ejected in the eighth inning for arguing a third-strike call at the knees by home plate umpire Ron Kulpa. Hunter got really heated, came too close to Kulpa and might be subject to an additional suspension. Brian Fuentes (S, 21) after walking leadoff hitter Jhonny Peralta in the ninth retired the side for the save.
