MLB has suspended White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson one game for his part in a scuffle that occurred Wednesday against the White Sox.
Anderson had homered the day before, and the Royals took offense to a bat flip he performed. During Wednesday’s game, Royals pitcher Brad Keller hit Anderson with a pitch in the 6th inning, which lead to a bench-clearing scuffle.
Here is what started the Royals-White Sox brawl today.
