NEW YORK (AP) -Atlanta's Rafael Soriano was suspended for four games by Major League Baseball on Thursday, three days after he hit Florida's Dan Uggla with a pitch.
Soriano plunked Uggla in the top of the ninth inning during Atlanta's 11-6 win over the Marlins on Monday night. Both teams were warned by umpires.
Uggla said the pitch was meant as payback for the three batters hit by Byung-Hyun Kim that night, or for the homer Uggla hit off Soriano in their last meeting.
``It was definitely intentional,'' Uggla said Monday. ``I was lucky it didn't hit me in the head.''
