Astros manager Hinch on hotel incident: 'No altercation'

Astros manager A.J. Hinch reportedly got into it with some fans at a hotel bar

If it did happen, maybe altercation was the spark Hinch needed - the Astros rallied Wednesday night to defeat the Dodgers 7-6 in Game 2.

Hinch addressed the rumors at a Thursday press conference as the series shifts to Houston, blasting a TMZ Sports report that cops were called to the team's hotel on Tuesday as a "fabrication".

The baseball duel at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night continued long after the first pitch - and spilled into a Pasadena hotel, police said. 'It's a shame I get asked about some nonsense, some fabrications and non-stories, and I have to respond to it on a national stage'. To reiterate, there was no altercation and that's as far as I'm going to go.

Curtis Granderson Left Off Dodgers 2017 World Series Roster for Brandon McCarthy
Roberts has said it's possible Seager will be used as a designated hitter on the road when the games shift to Houston on Friday. Roberts has given Granderson's roster spot to pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who hasn't appeared in a game since October 1.

One witness claimed that the incident became physical and the cops were called to intervene between the two.

Hinch was reportedly having drinks at the hotel bar after the Astros' 3-1 Game 1 loss when some fans entered the bar and heckled Hinch.

TMZ spoke to the Pasadena Police Department, who said they responded at 10:30 PM to help hotel security "keep the peace". TMZ reports that there were no arrests or reports from the incident, as both parties walked away. According to the report, Hinch then "snapped" and started screaming expletives.
