D-backs’ pitchers respond to teammates’ suspensions

Arizona Diamondbacks pitchers are miffed at MLB’s rulings on their teammates and manager after the team’s brawl with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, and some have taken to Twitter to air their thoughts.

The league announced Friday Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy will be suspended for 10 games, infielder Eric Hinske for five and manager Kirk Gibson for one. Catcher Miguel Montero and outfielder Gerardo Parra were fined.

For the Dodgers, pitcher J.P. Howell, infielder Skip Schumaker and hitting coach Mark McGwire received two-game bans, while reliever Ronald Belisario and manager Don Mattingly will each be out one game.

The Dodgers’ Zack Grienke and Yasiel Puig were fined, as was the organization for allowing players who were on the disabled list to leave the dugout and enter the field during the incident.
