Major League Baseball suspended five players, two managers and fined four others for their participation in the Los Angeles Dodgers-Arizona Diamondbacks brawl on Tuesday night.

Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire also received a two-game suspension for his conduct during the incident.

Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy set off a benches-clearing brawl during the 5-3 loss after he hit Dodgers rightfielder Yasiel Puig in the face in the sixth inning.

That came on a 1-2 count with one out and the bases empty and Arizona leading 2-0. Puig stayed in the game and then Andre Ethier followed with a game-tying home run.

Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was hit between the numbers by a Zack Greinke fastball on a 2-1 count. That resulted in the benches clearing but no actual fighting.

The suspensions and fines are as follows:

Kennedy received a 10-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Greinke in the bottom of the seventh inning, after a warning had already been issued to both Clubs earlier in the game;

Diamondbacks infielder Eric Hinske received a five-game suspension for leaving the dugout and for his aggressive actions during the incidents.

Dodgers pitcher J.P. Howell and infielder/outfielder Skip Schumaker each received two-game suspensions for their aggressive actions during the incidents.

Dodgers pitcher Ronald Belisario has received a one-game suspension for his aggressive actions during the incidents.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has received a one-game suspension for the actions of his Club and for his conduct during the incident.

D-backs manager Kirk Gibson received a one-game suspension for the intentional actions of Kennedy after a warning had been issued.

Fines also were issued to Greinke, Puig, Montero and Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra.
