'Nonsense, some fabrications': Astros manager refutes report of altercation at team hotel

Astros' Manager AJ Hinch Involved in Bar Altercation That Turned Physical in LA, Cops Called

The problem is, though, Hinch said Thursday it never happened and that "fabrications really suck".

TMZ reported the incident took place at the bar of the team's hotel in Pasadena, California, after Game 1 of the World Series, in which the Astros lost 3-1 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

After the Astros came up with a freakish 7-6 extra-innings win in Game 2 of the World Series Wednesday night, an odd story emerged from TMZ Thursday, saying that Hinch was involved in a "bar altercation" at the team hotel following Tuesday's Game 1. He said "let's get this out of the way", before adding that it was a shame that he get's asked about "nonsense".

Cops were called to separate the two parties. That's as far as I'm going to go.

In a follow-up question from Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times, Hinch was asked if some of the details of the TMZ story - that was he cursing and yelling in the middle of the bar - are not true. The encounter reportedly became physical, and police were called to break everyone up.

"I'm not going to address it". Of course, Hinch was back in the dugout for Game 2 of the World Series last night.

According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, though, things weren't as bad as they were made out to be.
