LOS ANGELES — Shane Victorino was suspended three games and fined by Major League Baseball for his actions in Friday's benches-clearing brawl at San Francisco. And he is the only player from either team to receive a suspension.

No Giants were reprimanded games for their actions. Both Eli Whiteside and Ramon Ramirez were fined an undisclosed amount. Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco was also fined.

Victorino's suspension would have begun Monday but he will appeal.

"Victorino’s aggressive actions prolonged the bench-clearing incident between the Clubs," according to a release issued by the commissioner's office.
