DETROIT — A couple Angels’ tempers boiled over on a frustrating, steamy afternoon at Comerica Park on Monday.

Martín Maldonado was ejected for the first time in his career, and then Manager Mike Scioscia was tossed immediately after, in the seventh inning of the Angels’ 9-3 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

An dismal afternoon — marked by Tyler Skaggs giving up a grand slam and a too-little, too-late day for the hitters — turned emotional when Maldonado objected to a third strike call by plate ump Mark Ripperger. Maldonado barked at the umpire as he walked back to the dugout, but Ripperger then tossed him. Scioscia came to Maldonado’s defense and also got ejected.

They weren’t around to see the end of one of the Angels’ ugliest games of the season.

Starting an all right-handed lineup — no Shohei Ohtani — against left-hander Matt Boyd, the Angels had only three three hits in the first seven innings.

By the time they put together a rally, with two runs on three hits in the eighth, they were already down by seven runs.

Skaggs put them in a hole with an uneven performance, one that was part bad luck and part poor pitch location.

Skaggs gave up a run in the second, after the Tigers executed a hit-and-run perfectly and an otherwise routine ground ball went for a single.

In the third, he issued a leadoff walk to No. 9 hitter Dixon Machado — an ominous start — and then he gave up two straight one-out ground ball singles to Nicholas Castellanos and Jeimer Candelario.

Skaggs then threw a 2-and-0 fastball over the middle of the plate to James McCann, who belted it over the left field fence for a grand slam. The ball left his bat at 109.4 mph, which was the hardest hit ball of McCann’s career.

It was the first time all month that an Angels starter had allowed five earned runs in a game.

Mike Trout hit a solo homer for the Angels in the ninth inning, his 18th of the season.
