Suspect in Bryan Stow beating faces a hearing today

Giovanni Ramirez, a suspect in the Bryan Stow beating at Dodger Stadium, still has not been charged in that case. And today he faces a hearing in which he could go free if it’s not found that he has violated his parole. If that happens he could be re-arrested again with specific connection to the Stow case, but then the police would face a short time period in which they’d either have to charge him or re-release him.

Complicating this: Ramirez’s attorney has said that 11 family members, neighbors and friends have provided an alibi for him, saying he was at an aunt’s house at the time of the attack.

So, for as happy as everyone was at the time of the arrest, this aint’ over yet folks.

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
