Angels DH Bobby Abreu ejected in 1st inning

Angels designated hitter Bobby Abreu has been ejected from Los

Angeles’ game against Detroit for arguing after a strikeout.

Abreu protested after umpire Angel Campos called him out on a

pitch from Tigers ace Justin Verlander to end the first inning

Tuesday night.

After a brief argument, Campos threw out Abreu, the Angels’ No.

3 hitter. Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia and first-base coach

Alfredo Griffin also argued with Campos about the ejection.

Abreu’s ejection was the fifth of his career, and first since

Aug. 8, 2007. No Angels player had been ejected this season.
