Shane Victorino was the only player suspended by Major League Baseball as a result of the bench-clearing scrum between the two-teams on Friday night.

Victorino was suspended three games, but will appeal. It is possible that suspension can be reduced.

Third baseman Placido Polanco and catcher Eli Whiteside were both fined, as was Ramon Ramirez, the pitcher who hit Victorino with a pitch.

No Giants were suspended.
