NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Jonny Venters has been
suspended for four games and fined by Major League Baseball for
throwing consecutive pitches at Milwaukee's Prince Fielder last
weekend.

Baseball's vice president in charge of discipline Bob Watson
also said Monday that Braves manager Bobby Cox has been suspended
for one game.

Cox will serve the suspension during Tuesday's game against San
Diego. Venters will start his penalty Tuesday unless the players'
association appeals.

Both were ejected for their actions Saturday. Cox's ejection was
his record 156th and third this season.
