MLB Players Suspended After Coors Field Brawl

San Diego Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo and Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado have been suspended five games for inciting a benches-clearing brawl during Wednesday's game.

Major League Baseball announced Friday Perdomo was suspended for intentionally throwing at the All-Star third baseman.

Arenda was suspended for charging the mound.

Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra was suspended four games for fighting, and Padres pitcher Buddy Bauman got a one-game suspension for fighting. The suspended players were also fined.

Padres catcher A.J. Ellis and infielder Freddy Galvis and Rockies right-hander German Marquez were fined but not suspended.

Arenado swung wildly at Perdomo after he reached the mound, but none of his punches landed squarely.

The brawl came during a tense series that included three batters being hit by pitches before the benches-clearing incident. San Diego's Manuel Margot was hit first and ended up on the disabled list.

The suspensions were effective Friday, pending appeals by the players. Colorado was at Washington Friday night and the Padres hosted the Giants.
