catcher was carted off after being bowled over in a home-plate collision with outfielder during the eighth inning of Sunday’s game.
Marisnick, who had just entered the contest as a pinch runner, tagged up at third following‘s fly out to right fielder . Lucroy had to come up the line to field Calhoun’s throw, and Marisnick moved his body to the inside as the backstop made the catch, leading to the head-on collision.
Lucroy received medical attention at home plate and appeared to be getting checked out for signs of a concussion.
After being kept on the ground for several minutes, he was eventually allowed to get up and was able to walk to the cart on his own. Marisnick, who appeared shaken after seeing Lucroy injured, quickly checked on the catcher and was one of several players on both teams to wish him well as he was carted off.
Marisnick was ruled out following a video review, leaving the Angels and Astros tied at 10-10 through eight innings.
Lucroy, 33, went 2-for-4 on Sunday and now owns a .237/.307/.364 slash line through 73 games for the Angels this season.
Because the play ended the inning, Lucroy was officially removed from the game when Justin Bour pinch hit for him in the top of the ninth. Dustin Garneau then took over behind the plate in the bottom half.
