PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cincinnati Reds pitcher Ross Ohlendorf has been suspended three games by Major League Baseball for throwing at Pittsburgh’s David Freese these week after warnings had been issued.
Ohlendorf also was fined Friday. He has appealed the penalties, and can pitch until there is a final resolution. The Reds play at Philadelphia this weekend.
Reds manager Bryan Price was suspended one game and fined.
Ohlendorf was ejected after hitting Freese in the ninth inning Wednesday night at Cincinnati. The Pirates won 5-4 in a game in which four Pirates batters were hit and two Reds were plunked, continuing the recent bad blood between the teams.
