DALLAS, Aug. 16 -- Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Tom Marsh is listed in fair condition Wednesday at Methodist Hospital in Dallas after suffering a concussion in Tuesday night's game at Houston. Marsh is alert and very talkative and was scheduled to undergo further tests.
Marsh suffered the concussion when he banged his head against the knee of Houston shortstop Orlando Miller while sliding into second base. Marsh was removed from the field on a stretcher with his neck in a brace and rushed to the hospital. 'When Marsh was getting in the ambulance, the doctor was talking to him,' said Phillies manager Jim Fregosi. 'He said, 'Put up two fingers and he did.'' Miller fielded a grounder hit by Philadelphia's Kevin Stocker in the seventh inning. As Miller came across second base, his left knee hit the left side of Marsh's head. The 29-year-old Marsh is hitting .266 with three homers and 13 RBI in 28 games this season.
