ARLINGTON, Texas — Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick has been suspended for two games by Major League Baseball after his violent home plate collision with Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

The suspension was announced Thursday before the AL West-leading Astros played a series opener at Texas in their first game after the All-Star break. Marisnick also was fined.

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. The Angels catcher sustained a concussion and broken nose. Marisnick was called out for colliding with Lucroy and the call was upheld after a crew chief review.

Marisnick said afterward that it was a "bad play" and that he hoped Lucroy was OK. He also posted on his Twitter later that he "made a split second decision at full speed" and he felt awful that another player got hurt.

Collision with vehicle in car wash claims life of Calgary gas bar owner.
CALGARY — The owner of a Calgary gas station is dead after emergency authorities say it appears he was accidentally run over by a vehicle in the station's car wash. The 64-year-old man was pronounced dead at a Centex outlet in the city's southwest around 1 p.m. Wednesday. Police believe a driver intended to pull forward inside the car wash, but instead reversed and struck the owner. The station remains closed while Occupational Health and Safety investigates. The victim has not been identified and Centex Petroleum says in a statement that his family has requested privacy.
