WASHINGTON - 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.
