Video: Angels defeat A's, 4-1
Torii Hunter took exception to a recent blog headline that jokingly suggested he was not in the May 8 lineup against Cleveland because he was ducking Indians ace Fausto Carmona.
"I'm not afraid of nobody!" Hunter told reporters, somewhat angrily, the next day. "I'm a beast, man!"
That he was Monday night.
Hunter gunned down the potential go-ahead run with a strong throw to the plate in the seventh inning and knocked in the go-ahead run with a double in the eighth to lead the Angels to a 4-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics at Angel Stadium.
