Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto will accept a seven game suspension which was handed down to him by major league baseball on Thursday. Cueto was found kicking and shoving as part of the bench clearing brawl against the Cardinals at Great American Ball Park Tuesday night.

St. Louis manager Tony LaRussa and Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker also were given two game suspensions for their part in the brawl. The incident started after Brandon Phillips tapped Yadier Molina before his first at bat of the game. This came after comments Phillips made regarding the Cardinals drew St. Louis ire.

Yadier Molina, Chris Carpenter, Brandon Phillips and Russ Springer were fined for the incident as well.

St. Louis came into the series two games back of the Reds for first place in the National League Central division. The Cardinals came in and swept the series, never trailing, and left Cincinnati with a full game lead.

The Cardinals started a home series with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, while the Reds host the Florida Marlins, and had to face ace pitcher Josh Johnson on Friday night. The Cardinals and Reds will meet just one more series this season, over labor day weekend.
