Beer thrower faces charges

The Spokesman-Review

Around the horn

The Coliseum fan who threw a cup of beer at Yankees slugger Jason Giambi will face multiple criminal charges, officials said Sunday in Oakland, Calif.

Eric Anduri of Lafayette, Calif., spent Saturday night in jail after pelting Giambi with the beer when the former Oakland Athletics star returned to the New York dugout after flying out in the eighth inning of the Yankees’ 15-6 win.

Anduri, whose age wasn’t available, was arrested and charged with battery, public intoxication and throwing objects on the field, said David Rinetti, the A’s vice president of stadium operations. A spokesman for the Oakland Police Department would not confirm the charges.

“It’s over. There’s nothing to talk about,” Giambi said before the series finale.

Bagwell to have surgery

Jeff Bagwell will have surgery on his arthritic right shoulder early next month in hopes of prolonging his career that has been derailed by pain.

The Houston Astros’ first baseman has been out since May 3. He was placed on the disabled list Tuesday for the first time in seven seasons, because of the degenerative shoulder condition that will require surgery, the team said before its game against the San Francisco.

“To be honest, I’m excited about it,” Bagwell said. “I want to show myself and the organization that I can still play. I really believe it will work. This is my best opportunity to play again.”
