Angels, Astros get into it after Jake Marisnick hit by pitch

Jake Marisnick

The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels got into it on Tuesday night after Jake Marisnick was hit by a pitch.

Angels reliever Noe Ramirez had Marisnick 1-1 with nobody out in the top of the sixth. Ramirez ran a 90 mph fastball up and in on Marisnick, hitting him high on the back between the shoulder blades.

Marisnick, who has become an unpopular figure in Anaheim due to his collision with Jonathan Lucroy on July 7, ran straight to first.

Some in the Astros dugout seemed bothered by the hit by pitch and chirped from the dugout. First baseman Albert Pujols heard something he didn’t like and walked over to the opposing dugout.

The bullpens emptied and benches cleared as players walked over to get involved.

Marisnick actually tried to play peacemaker the whole time and told his players to go back into the dugout. He seemed to be expecting to get hit and just took it like a pro. He later stole second base but was stranded on the bases.

Marisnick had been getting booed by Angels fans during his at-bats in the game.
