Astros’ Bryan Abreu suspended 2 games for plunking Adolis Garcia after home run

Major League Baseball announced Saturday Bryan Abreu has been suspended two games for hitting Adolis Garcia with a pitch in Game 5 of the ALCS in an at-bat after his three-run home run.

Garcia hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning Friday night that gave his Texas Rangers a 4-2 lead. The next pitch Garcia saw in the eighth drilled him in his right elbow pad.

Garcia’s immediately got in catcher Martin Maldonado’s face, and the two had to be separated.

The Astros got the last laugh after Jose Altuve’s three-run home run in the ninth inning gave Houston its third straight win, all on the road, to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 ALCS.

Houston is one win away from making its third consecutive World Series and its fifth in the last seven years.
