In a rather one sided ball game (6-1 Tigers at writing) there has been a bit of escalating bad blood and tension between the Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers. With Colby Rasmus at first base and Rajai Davis at the plate Davis hit a weak grounder to shortstop Jhonny Peralta who threw to Omar Infante covering second base. Instead of Infante just taking the easy out at the bag and stepping off given there was zero chance to double up the speedy Davis he attempted to turn two and was taken out by a very hard aggressive slide by Rasmus.
It appears Infante tweaked his knee and was in obvious pain. He left the game and was limping pretty severely. The Tigers did not appear happy but cooler heads prevailed until the top of the 6th inning when newcomer Todd Redmond relieved Josh Johnson and hit Torii Hunter with a pitch up and in. There was clearly no intent by the minor league veteran making his Blue Jays debut (and hoping to make a solid impression) in a 6-0 game but Torii Hunter was none too pleased and took a few steps towards the mound while shouting at Redmond.
Both benches emptied but nothing came of it outside of a warning given to each team by the umpiring crew.
