Fielder, Mota fined by MLB, but not suspended

NEW YORK — Milwaukee Brewers star Prince Fielder and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Guillermo Mota have been fined for their run-in this week.

Major League Baseball will not suspend them. The amounts of the fines were not disclosed Thursday.

Mota hit Fielder in the ninth inning of a 17-4 win Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, presumably as payback for Milwaukee's Chris Smith grazing Manny Ramirez with a pitch two innings earlier.

Afterward, Fielder charged across a hallway toward the Dodgers' clubhouse but was restrained by teammates and security. The teams played Wednesday night and there were no incidents.
