Houston fans will be disappointed to learn that Gerolamo Taschini suffered a bruised wrist while being hit by a pitch in today’s game. After the doctor informed the Houston Astros manager that Taschini was expected to miss 3 weeks, the manager told the press that the rest of the team would have to step up their play until the third baseman could return. “You can’t make excuses in baseball, because there’s always a game tomorrow,” said the team’s skipper.
