Cleveland's Jeanmar Gomez Suspended For Beaning Moustakas

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that Cleveland Indians pitcher Jeanmar Gomez has been suspended for five games after it was determined he purposely hit Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas with a pitch last Saturday.

Unless Gomez appealed the suspension, it was to begin Wednesday night. Gomez's pitch caused the benches to clear for the second time in the game. It may have been a response to Cleveland's Shin-Soo Choo earlier in the inning. As a result of the scrum, Gomez, Cleveland manager Manny Acta and Cleveland third baseman Jack Hannahan were ejected. Hannahan and Acta were fined for their roles in the incident.

Gomez has pitched four innings in two appearances this season, giving up one earned run and no hits. The Indians won Saturday's game 11-9 in 10 innings and swept the Royals over the weekend.
