Detroit Tigers’ offense keeps pounding Texas Rangers, 7-3

Detroit Tigers manager AJ Hinch emerged from the dugout in the third inning.

He got in the face of home plate umpire Jansen Visconti and was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Robbie Grossman took a called strike on a pitch below the strike zone, then struck out on a questionable check swing.

Those calls sparked comments from Miguel Cabrera, who had a scheduled day off. Defending his players, Hinch was tossed for the 18th time in his career and the second time this season.

“When he points at our players in our dugout, I can’t stand for that,” Hinch said. “You can’t elevate things from the umpire. Jansen normally doesn’t do that, but he didn’t like the dugout. He should point at me and not point at my players.”
