WASHINGTON (AP) - Eric Hinske's suspension for participating in a June 11 brawl at Dodger Stadium has been reduced to one game from five.
He dropped his appeal and will serve the suspension Tuesday night as Arizona opens a three-game series in Washington. Hinske said his agent informed of him of Major League Baseball's decision.
``He said that (MLB) had different video and that I did not throw punches, and I knew that. I was just trying to be patient through it and wait to hear because it was really out of my hands,'' Hinske said. ``Part of me still wants to appeal it because I feel like I did nothing wrong. But bringing it down four games is drastic, it's a pretty fair thing.
