Eric Hinske's suspension for participating in a June 11 brawl at Dodger Stadium has been reduced to one game from five. Eric Hinske, who many thought received an unjust five-game suspension after the Dbacks-Dodgers brawl two weeks ago, is getting his suspension reduced to one game, according to Ken Rosenthal from Fox Sports. Hinske said his agent informed of him of Major League Baseball's decision. In all, eight members of the Diamondbacks and Dodgers organizations were suspended, including Diamondbacks right hander Ian Kennedy, who is serving his 10-game suspension. All rights reserved. The Arizona Diamondbacks utility man was handed one of the longest suspensions despite being a punching bag for Yasiel Puig, and getting called a "peacemaker" in the aftermath.
