Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Jonny Venters was suspended for four games and fined by Major League Baseball on Monday for throwing consecutive pitches at Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder last weekend.
“I think it’s in everybody’s best interests that the physical well-being of the players should be foremost,” Brewers manager Ken Macha said. “My point of view is that it behooves everybody that Prince is able to go out and play all 162 and not have a broken wrist or dislocated back.”
One inning after Fielder’s homer started a five-run inning for the Brewers in a 6-3 win, Venters threw a pitch over his head. Plate umpire Angel Hernandez warned both benches and Venters hit Fielder in the back with the next pitch.
“I don’t really care,” Fielder said.
