NEW YORK -- Seattle Sounders midfielder Servando Carrasco has been suspended for one game and fined $500 for a reckless challenge on Chicago Fire forward Patrick Nyarko in a game last Saturday.

Carrasco received a yellow card for the foul, but the MLS disciplinary committee ruled the play endangered Nyarko's safety. Carrasco will miss Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

Galaxy midfielder Jovan Kirovski has been given a one-game suspension in addition to the automatic one-game ban for drawing a red card last Saturday against D.C. United. The MLS committee fined him an additional $750 after the automatic $250 fine for the red card Kirovski received for verbal abuse of an official.

Kirovski missed Wednesday's game at Toronto and will be out Sunday against Chicago.
