ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Two Asheville Tourists baseball players are accused of raping a woman at their apartment. The Asheville Police Department says Michael Mason and Jesse Meaux were charged Thursday with two counts of first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sex offense. Both of the relief pitchers are 23 years old. They are being held at the Buncombe County jail on $100,000 bond each. A court hearing is set for Friday. According to arrest reports released by the department, the alleged rape occurred early last Saturday. The Colorado Rockies said in a statement that the Major League team and its affiliate are shocked and deeply concerned by the allegations. It has suspended both players. Both organizations are working with authorities. (© 2013 by STATS LLC and Associated Press.
