MLB Reduces Bryce Harper's Suspension To Three Games

01 Июня 2017

Upon appeal, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper's suspension for his role in a brawl with San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland was reduced to three games Wednesday.

Harper charged the mound and threw his helmet, which appeared to slip out of his hand and come nowhere close to Strickland, but they both landed punches before being engulfed by teammates in a melee at the center of the infield.

Harper's suspension begins Wednesday night in the series finale against San Francisco, and given that the Nationals have an off day on Thursday, the Nationals slugger should be eligible to return on Sunday.

On Tuesday, Hunter Strickland was by his locker when the media arrived in the clubhouse of the San Francisco Giants and he answered questions related to the incident that caused him to be suspended for six games.

Both players appealed the punishment in hopes of getting it reduced and will be allowed to play until the case is resolved. In addition to the suspensions, both players received fines for their actions.

Harper still sounded bewildered that Strickland would hold a grudge for so long, saying, "It's just insane that it even happened yesterday".

"I wasn't going up there thinking about it", Harper said after Monday's game.

"I'm obviously not thrilled about it", Strickland said. After three years, to do that, I don't know what was going through his mind or how upset he was the past couple of years. "We'll go from there".

Baker didn't think Harper's punishment was fair, saying, "Probably only Martin Luther King or Gandhi would have turned the other cheek and not done something reactionary".

The bad blood stems from a pair of home runs Harper hit off Strickland in the 2014 playoffs, when the Giants went on to capture their third World Series championship in five years. "We as a whole group and team, we stick together".
