Let’s face it, Monday night’s game against the New York Yankees is one that Mikie Mahtook of the Detroit Tigers would rather forget, at least from a personal standpoint. The Tigers CF was hit by a pitch not once but twice during the contest.
But it’s the second occasion that will have everyone talking in the morning.
Watch as Mahtook is drilled in the helmet with a pitch and he proceeds to let Yankees pitcher Tommy Kahnle know exactly how he feels.
Note: If you are offended by strong language and can read lips, you may not want to watch this. Heck, who am I kidding, you made it this far!

Luckily, Mahtook shook it off and later came into score on a Jim Adduci single. As he crossed the plate, it looked like Kahnle apologized and Mahtook seemed to accept the apology.
Looks like Kahnle might have given apology, Mahtook gave him friendly pat. So we'll see. Bruce, standby. https://t.co/7C0ZV9cS6T
