NEW YORK, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Boston pitcher David Wells, suspended six games and fined by for making contact with two umpires in July, will not have his suspension reduced.
Wells made his appeal last week in Kansas City and it was officially denied Monday. Wells immediately began serving his punishment, which stemmed from an early July incident when the pitcher made contact with two umpires.
Wells' suspension will end Sunday, and he is expected to pitch then against Baltimore.
The veteran left-hander is 11-6 in 24 starts with a 4.44 ERA.
