Torii Hunter Suspended Four Games For Ejection Tantrum

DETROIT — Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter has been suspended for four games after a wild outburst Friday night against Detroit.

Hunter was suspended and fined on Saturday. He decided not to appeal, meaning the ban started immediately.

Hunter was ejected by plate umpire Ron Kulpa for arguing a called third strike in the eighth inning of Los Angeles' 4-2 victory. He threw a bag of baseballs onto the field during his tantrum.

Juan Rivera replaced Hunter in the Angels' lineup for Saturday night's game at Detroit.
