HOUSTON (AP) Jake Marisnick wouldn't acknowledge whether he thought his tiebreaking home run in the bottom of the eighth inning had ended the game. His teammates, however, were teasing him in the clubhouse after the game about a nearly humiliating premature celebration while he was rounding the bases.
"I don't know what you're talking about," Marisnick said with a grin when asked about it. "No comment."
Either way, Marisnick hit Houston's fourth homer of the game to lift the Astros to a 7-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night.
