Indians' Abreu, Wedge suspended

CLEVELAND, July 27 (UPI) -- Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Winston Abreu and Manager Eric Wedge are being punished with suspensions for a weekend beaning incident in Seattle.

Abreu was suspended for three games for intentionally hitting Jack Hannahan in the ninth inning Saturday when the Indians were leading the Mariners 10-0. Wedge was to miss Monday night's game and will be replaced by bench coach Jeff Datz.

Abreu allegedly retaliated after Seattle pitcher Chris Jakubauskas hit Ben Francisco with a pitch following a home run by Asdrubal Cabrera. The beaning brought both teams out of their dugouts onto the field.

Abreu and Wedge were ejected from that game. Jakubauskas was fined by Major League Baseball but not suspended.
