 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Matt Capps was suspended for four games and fined Monday for hitting the Brewers' Prince Fielder with a pitch during a 6-3 loss at Milwaukee last week.
The penalty, announced Monday by Major League Baseball vice president Bob Watson, will start Tuesday unless Capps appeals.
Capps hit Fielder high in the right shoulder just after giving up a three-run homer to J.J. Hardy in the seventh inning Saturday. Plate umpire Alfonso Marquez immediately ejected Capps.
``(Marquez) felt like he was intentionally throwing at him,'' Pirates manager Jim Tracy said after the game Saturday. ``I don't think that's the character of Matt Capps.''
Capps denied having intentionally thrown at Fielder and called the umpire's decision ``a judgmental call on his part.''
Capps is 2-0, with a 2.25 ERA in 18 games this season.
