TOP STORY:  Marisnick Attacks!

Houston Astros’ centerfielder, Jake Marisnick, had himself one helluva night. The number nine hitter went 3-4 at the plate, crushing two dingers while adding a double to his stat line. The 26-year-old ended the game with a career-high five RBIs in the Astros 14-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Marisnick has a career high in home runs this season after slugging his 12th and 13th on Monday night. His previous high was 9 back in 2015.
