Brewers, Pirates handed suspensions

MILWAUKEE -

Major League Baseball has suspended four players involved in last Sunday's brawl between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado was suspended five games while outfielder Carlos Gomez was suspended three games.

Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider must sit two games, with Russell Martin also missing one game.

There was no immediate word on whether the players plan to appeal. Snider and Martin were in Pittsburgh's initial posted lineup before Tuesday night's game against Cincinnati.

Benches cleared after Gomez and Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole exchanged words after Gomez's triple in the third inning.

Snider came onto the field and tackled Gomez, getting a minor assist from Martin in the process.

Snider was then punched in the face by Maldonado, receiving a small gash under his left eye.
