Astros Coach Gets 20-Game Suspension, A’s Laureano 6 After Benches-Clearing Brawl

OAKLAND (AP) – Houston Astros hitting coach Álex Cintrón received a 20-game suspension and a fine Tuesday for his role in a benches-clearing brawl at Oakland, while Athletics outfielder Ramon Laureano was given a six-game suspension and a fine. Cintrón’s suspension is the longest for an on-field transgression in 15 years, since Texas pitcher Kenny Rogers received 20 games for his altercation with two cameramen in 2005. “I accept MLB’s suspension and will learn from this,” Cintrón said in a statement. “Although I never referenced Ramon’s mother, my actions were inappropriate. I apologize for my part in Sunday’s unfortunate incident. As coaches, we are held to a higher standard and should be an example to the players. Hopefully, other coaches will learn from my mistake so that this never happens again in the future.” Laureano appealed, so his discipline won’t begin Tuesday night against the Angels, Major League Baseball said. Laureano was hit by a pitch from Humberto Castellanos with one out in the seventh inning of Oakland’s 7-2 victory Sunday.

California Begins Adding Backlogged Coronavirus Cases To Record

SACRAMENTO (AP) – California began adding additional coronavirus cases to its public record Tuesday, a week after state officials acknowledged a data problem in late July had caused nearly 300,000 records not to appear in its health system. The state reported 12,500 confirmed cases, up sharply from its previous 14-day average. But it was not clear on what dates the confirmed cases were found. Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly has said the backlogged cases would be applied to each date they were recorded so California’s data-tracking system would be accurate. But the additional numbers were included as part of the state total Tuesday, making it difficult to assess the overall infection rate. A spokeswoman for the California Department of Public Health, Ali Bay, said the data was still being processed and she could not say when reporting dates and positivity rates would be updated.

Gavin Newsom, who has pledged repeatedly to make decisions…
