Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy was carted off the field in the eighth inning after a collision at the plate with the Houston Astros' Jake Marisnick.
The Angels said Lucroy was sent to a local hospital to receive a CT scan and will be evaluated for a possible concussion and fractured nose.
"It certainly didn't look like a clean play,'' Angels manager Brad Ausmus said after his team fell to the Astros 11-10 in 10 innings. "I don't know what actually happened, but it looked like Marisnick took a step to the left and bowled into him with his arm up. The call was right. Really, I think Major League Baseball should probably take a look at it. Consider some type of suspension, quite frankly.''
Ausmus said he hadn't spoken to Lucroy since the game ended, but that he tried talking to him on the field and "he was pretty confused at the time.''
The bases were loaded with the game tied at 10 when Marisnick attempted to score on a sacrifice fly by George Springer.
