There was head-hunting last night against the Astros. Do they retaliate? Can Cole stop the skid? Join the discussion?

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

We all know what happened last night between Noe Ramirez, Jake Marisnick, and the Angels coming out to fight an Astros team that refused to play that game. The league came down with quick judgement, giving Ramirez a three day suspension, and manager Brad Ausmus a one-day suspension. Ramirez will appeal his suspension, while Ausmus will not manage tonight’s game, giving the managing duties to coach Josh Paul.

Gerrit Cole will pitch for the Astros tonight, facing off against Felix Pena of the Angels. Mike Trout will not be in the lineup for the Angels tonight.
