‘It’s over now’ – Astros eager to put scandal behind them

Royals beat slumping Astros 6-5


HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros spent the off-season reeling from a sign-stealing scandal that cost manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their jobs. Veteran Dusty Baker took over as the manager of the AL champs just before spring training. And Baker, the 71-year-old manager in what could be his last shot at a World Series title, hopes that the scandal doesn’t hang over the team when the season finally begins on July 24 when the Astros host the Mariners.
