Laureano says Astros coach insulted mother, sparking fracas

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Oakland outfielder Ramon Laureano says Houston Astros hitting coach Alex Cintron made a crude remark about his mother that prompted a benches-clearing incident Sunday, and Athletics manager Bob Melvin wants Cintron punished harshly by Major League Baseball.

Laureano said Monday he regrets charging toward Houston's dugout to fight Cintron after the two exchanged words during the seventh inning of a game Sunday in Oakland. Speaking before a game against the Los Angeles Angels, Laureano said Cintron began jawing at him when Laureano reacted angrily after being hit by a pitch from Houston rookie Humberto Castellanos.

"I should have kept my cool because I wasted my time with that guy," Laureano said. "Right now, I don't look like a smart guy, but when you are emotional and someone says something about your mother, I don't think anyone would take that lightly.
