Collision sends Pirates' Gonzalez, Marte to injured list

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Starling Marte and shortstop Erik Gonzalez's full-speed collision in the outfield on Friday night sent both players to the injured list.

Marte will be out at least 10 days while recovering from bruises to his abdominal wall and right quadriceps. Gonzalez will miss at least two months after being put on the 60-day injured list with a fractured collarbone.

Both players were injured when they ran into each other trying to chase down a fly ball by San Francisco's Yangervis Solarte in the eighth inning of Pittsburgh's 4-1 victory on Friday night. Neither appeared to see the other. The ball squirted free after the collision. Gonzalez was able to walk off the field but Marte left in a cart as a precaution.
