Blame for Brewers-Pirates brawl?

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in 14 innings Sunday, moving to an MLB-best 14-5 on the season. But that didn't take the headlines; instead, it was a big brawl that drew the most attention. It started when center fielder Carlos Gomez flipped his bat and looked on after hitting a ball deep to center field. Gomez ended up with a triple, and pitcher Gerrit Cole took exception to Gomez's behavior (Gomez says he thought the ball would be caught). Words led to punches, and ultimately Gomez, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected. On Tuesday, Gomez (three games), Snyder (two games), the Pirates' Russell Martin (one game) and the Brewers' Martin Maldonado (five games for punching Sinder) were suspended.
