Yasiel Puig Suspended, Nick Hundley Fined for Dodgers-Giants Fight

Major League Baseball suspended Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig for two games Thursday for fighting and inciting a bench-clearing incident in Tuesday's game against the Giants. 

Giants catcher Nick Hundley, whom Puig shoved, was not suspended. Instead, he was fined an undisclosed amount of money for his role in the fracas.

Puig also was fined an undisclosed amount. 

Hundley was asked after the game if he expected any punishment for himself or for Puig. 

"I was defending myself. He was defending himself," Hundley said. "I don't see why it should go any further than that."

Puig's suspension will begin Friday when the Dodgers face the Mariners. If Puig appeals the suspension and loses, it will begin once the process is complete.
