MLB Announces Punishment For Astros-Angels Collision

The game was tied at the time. If, in the judgment of the umpire, a runner attempting to score initiates contact with the catcher (or other player covering home plate) in such a manner, the umpire shall declare the runner out (regardless of whether the player covering home plate maintains possession of the ball).

Lucroy was carted off the field last Sunday after the collision at the end of the eighth inning of a game at Houston the Astros won 11-10 in 10 innings. Marisnick and Lucroy banged heads on the play; the back of Lucroy's head also struck the infield dirt. His suspension will begin Thursday when the Astros face the Texas Rangers unless he elects to appeal, which might lead to a reduction in the length of his suspension.

Tagging on a sacrifice fly from third base as a pinch runner, Marisnick bowled over Lucroy as he attempted apply a tag.

"After thoroughly reviewing the play from all angles, I have concluded that Jake's actions warrant discipline", Joe Torre, chief baseball officer for Major League Baseball, said in announcing the suspension.

The Angels said Lucroy would see an ear, nose and throat specialist after the All-Star break, when his swelling had subsided.

Marisnick's Astros teammates on Sunday defended him in the comments and on social media. "I just hope he's doing good and it sounds like he's doing a little better", Jake said.

Lucroy appeared to be knocked unconscious momentarily after the contact and Marisnick immediately went over to him to check on him knowing the violence of their collision.

Angels manager and former Astros catcher Brad Ausmus thought a suspension was in order for Marisnick. "The call was right".
