'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison said that Astros catcher Carlos Corporan wasn't blocking the back part of home plate when he first planned to slide in the bottom of the second inning Monday afternoon.

But then Corporan started to come back, and Harrison changed the angle of his body -- he thinks.

"To be honest, I don't even know what happened," Harrison said. "I just know I was sliding and he was about to block it. I think as he was coming back to tag me, my face was ahead of my body and it kind of went into his shoulder. That would be my guess."

The nose-to-shoulder collision forced Harrison out of the game with dizziness the next inning, but he said that he passed concussion tests administered Tuesday and was cleared to play last night, although he did not start the game.

"I'm feeling a lot better," he said yesterday. "Ran through tests, did some early work running and throwing, and everything checked out. I guess they'll get me back in when they feel ready."

Harrison made the third out of the inning and took the field to start the third. He made two errors, and said that he started to feel dizzy after he flied out to right field and ran to second in the bottom of the inning. He informed the staff of his condition, then came out of the game.

"(The dizziness didn't stop until) after I came in and the doctor looked at me," said Harrison, who still had a swollen nose and split lip yesterday. "It took a little time after winding down out of my adrenaline. After a while it kind of went away, and the only thing was the nose kept bleeding."
