SFGate -

Miami pitcher Jose Ureña was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Ronald Acuña Jr. of the Braves with a pitch.

Major League Baseball announced the penalties Thursday, a day after Ureña hit Acuña on the left arm with his first pitch in the Marlins' 5-2 loss in Atlanta. Acuña, 20, went into the game having homered in five straight games, including four homers in the three games against Miami - three of them leading off.
