Hammel ejected after hitting batter
Hammel began the fourth inning by giving up a home run to Victor Martinez on a 3-1 pitch. Jhonny Peralta followed with a drive to left on a 2-2 pitch, and Alex Avila made it three in a row to put Detroit up 4-1.
On his next throw, Hammel plunked Tuiasosopo in the ear flap with a fastball. The right-hander was immediately ejected by home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt.
Hammel and Orioles manager Buck Showalter argued the ejection, to no avail.
It was the first time the Tigers hit three straight homers since 2001. Later in the inning, Miguel Cabrera hit a grand slam.
