Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jonathan Sanchez has been suspended six games and fined by Major League Baseball for hitting St. Louis Cardinals 1B Allen Craig Friday, April 26. Sanchez had allowed back-to-back home runs and a single in the first inning before being ejected by plate umpire Tim Timmons for hitting Craig in the shoulder. Manager Clint Hurdle was also ejected for arguing. Sanchez said he will appeal the decision.
