Porter mum about Astros' in-game meeting

HOUSTON -- Astros manager Bo Porter wouldn't elaborate Monday when asked about the impromptu team meeting held in the tunnel between the visiting dugout and the clubhouse after the second inning of Sunday's game against the Indians at Progressive Field.

Television cameras captured the entire team and coaching staff disappearing for less than a minute and into the tunnel prior to the third inning when the game was tied 0-0.

"We'll leave it in the tunnel," said Porter, who admittedly isn't big on team meetings.

Those who were in the meeting said Porter simply reminded his club it had a chance to win the series against the Indians. The Astros proceeded to lose, 3-1, to the Indians, dropping the final two games of the series. They still went 5-5 on their 10-game road trip that ended in Cleveland.
