7-game Suspension for Reds Pitcher

Johnny Cueto, Cincinnati Reds pitcher, has been suspended for seven games. This follows the brawl that broke out in the first inning of Tuesday’s game in Cincinnati with the St. Louis Cardinals.  The brawl centered on Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips who said he hated the Cardinals and called them complainers.  A fight quickly escalated when Phillips came up to bat and exchanged words with catcher Molina.  Both managers have been suspended for two games and Major League Baseball said that Cueto, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and Reds manager Dusty Baker also were fined undisclosed amounts.  Cardinal’s pitcher Chris Carpenter, catcher Yadier Molina, and Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips and their relief pitcher Russ Springer were fined but not suspended. It is not known if Cueto will appeal his suspension.  By MLB rules, Baker and La Russa can not challenge their suspensions.  Both managers will serve their bans on Friday and Saturday when the Reds host the Marlins and the Cardinals host the Cubs.
