The Athletics of Oakland and the Houston Astros have made a mockery of the social distancing and went from a scrum in the seventh inning after Ramon Laureano had been reached by a launch. The A’s have used the time to take 7 to 2, on Sunday at Oakland.
It was 6 to 2 for the home team when Laureano received the shot from the gunner of the Astros Humberto Castellanos in the back. The victim was then pointed out by the director of reliever before starting his march towards the first cushion and that the catcher Martin Maldonado and a referee were trying to convince him not to act.
Arrived at the first goal, Laureano has exchanged some bad words with the bench of the Astros and the melee followed. The instructor of hitters Alex Cintron appeared to be the most involved, and the outfielder is headed to a good step towards him before being blocked.
The incident continued with the arrival of the players benches and bleachers (some hidden, some not) and several people have been evicted, whose Laureano.
For points, Robbie Grossman, Matt Olson and Matt Chapman have all hit the long ball for the A s. The latter has continued his good day at bat with a double to a point after the melee.
Yuli Gurriel was the only one able to ensure the replica in the Astros with a circuit of two points. The launcher Cristian Javier (1-1) has added the defeat, while the victory went to the card-Jesus Luzardo (1-0) and the rescue, his first, to Burch Smith.
