Game Recap: Astros turn things around, trounce Angels 11-2

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Jake Marisnick and Gerrit Cole both came up big After dropping two rough loses to the Angels in a row, the Astros struck back in a big way Wednesday night, staking Gerrit Cole to an 11-run lead and closing things out 11-2.

Ramirez will appeal his suspension, while Ausmus will not manage tonight’s game, giving the managing duties to coach Josh Paul. Gerrit Cole will pitch for...

Astros Opener gambit fails again. Angels pounce on Rondon for six in the first for 7-2 win

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports After the Angels beaned him, then cleared their bench and bullpen, Marisnick implored his teammates to stay in their dugout and avoid a fight Today, ESPN will not show a stupid, bench clearing melee’ that happened on a baseball field last night.

The ESPN audience will be deprived the fun of seeing two milling gangs of men shouting at each other, threatening each other, sometimes attacking each other, other times...
