Brandon Workman Suspended Six Games

 Former Bowie stand out baseball pitcher Brandon Workman now with the Boston Red Sox has been suspended six games and fined by Major League Baseball, which said he intentionally threw a pitch near the head of Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria during a game last week.

The penalty was announced Tuesday by MLB Senior Vice President Joe Garagiola Jr. Discipline would be put off if Workman asks the players' association to appeal.

Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp was hit on the arm Friday by a fourth-inning pitch from Tampa Bay ace David Price, who also plunked slugger David Ortiz on the hip in the first inning — triggering umpires to issue warnings to both teams.

Carp glared out at the mound, shouting and pointing at Price, but was restrained by Rays catcher Jose Molina as players from both teams charged out of the dugouts and bullpens. There was some pushing and shoving, but no punches were thrown.

Workman threw a high pitch in the sixth behind Longoria, who was visibly upset. Longoria and Boston catcher A.J. Pierzynski had a conversation at home plate, and a handful of players from both dugouts ventured a few steps onto the field, but no trouble ensued. Workman was ejected. (AP)
