Hunter Strickland suspended 6 games, Bryce Harper 4

Melody Ballard | 01 June, 2017, 01:45

The Washington Nationals' Bryce Harper was not having it when Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland hit him with his first pitch during the eighth inning of a game at AT&T Park on Monday, and Harper immediately launched his batting helmet at the pitcher, and ran up to the mound for a fight.

Strickland hit Harper in the hip with a pitch and the Washington slugger charged the mound, hurling his helmet at the pitcher and trading punches to the head with Strickland during the Nationals' 3-0 win over the Giants. MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre seemed to agree with Harper, handing Strickland the stiffer of the penalties, a six-gamer.

Replays of the Nats-Giants scuffle was still being replayed on TVs inside the Yankees clubhouse Tuesday at Camden Yards, prior to the news of Strickland's six-game suspension (for throwing at Harper) and Harper's four-game ban (for charging Strickland) by Major League Baseball.

Not where some expected to find the Giants team leader with his pitcher, Hunter Strickland, exchanging head shots with Harper.

Harper launched two mammoth long-distance homers off Strickland in the 2014 postseason and Monday's at-bat marked the first time they faced one another since those blasts.

Some, assuming that Strickland was still smarting over home runs Harper had hit off him in the 2014 playoffs, thought his goal pitch was ridiculous.

The 6-foot-4 Strickland hit Harper in the face, then they broke apart for a moment before squaring off again.

And then when Strickland's teammates are trying to get him off the field he's basically fighting them like a mad animal. In the eighth, Murphy made the Giants pay for hitting Harper, singling home pinch runner Brian Goodwin with two outs to make it 3-0.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker tried to deflect some of the attention, insisting to a large group of reporters that he felt Harper's suspension was unfair.

Over at AT&T park on Wednesday, the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants will be wrapping up their Major League Baseball series. This could really hurt the Nationals hot start to the season if Harper misses too much time. (Strickland) probably took exception to that, " Baker said. “I could tell the way Buster Posey reacted he had nothing to do with it. "Whatever they say goes and I'm just going to worry about the four games I got and see what I can do". "I don't know why he did it or what he did it for, but I guess it happens".

He said that "like an ignorant redneck, I thought, 'Wouldn't it be awesome to throw a catfish on the ice at this game?'" Morse looked like he was there to play peacemaker and get between Strickland and Harper, his old teammate.

The two went head-to-head in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series, with Cain and the Giants prevailing 4-3 to complete a four-game sweep of Scherzer's Detroit Tigers. I'll be ready. You know, I like my chances toe to toe with just about anybody.
