Major League Baseball has suspended Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Ureña six games for hitting rookie Ronald Acuña with his first pitch. Ureña was also fined an undisclosed amount. Acuña had hit a leadoff home run in each of his three previous games when he stepped to the plate against the Marlins right-hander.
