Mets' Carlos Mendoza, Yohan Ramirez suspended for throwing at Milwaukee's Rhys Hoskins

Mets manager Carlos Mendoza and reliever Yohan Ramirez have been suspended for throwing behind Milwaukee's Rhys Hoskins during Saturday's game at Citi Field.

Mendoza will serve his one-game ban while Ramirez will appeal the three games he received.

Hoskins has been public enemy No. 1 in New York over the first few days of the season after his dirty slide into Jeff McNeil to break up a double play caused the benches to clear on Opening Day.

Many felt that while the Mets needed to retaliate, the timing wasn't right in the seventh inning after the slugger had already gone 3-for-3 with a homer and four RBI over his first few at-bats.

Both Ramirez and Mendoza insisted to reporters following the 7-6 loss that the pitch simply got away from him and it was not intentional.

"I was trying to run my sinker in," the reliever said through a translator. "Sometimes when I try to get it too in, the ball just runs. With this type of weather, I don’t have the grip that I’m accustomed to having. At that point, the pitch just ran, but I’m not trying to hit him.”

However, MLB ultimately decided it was indeed intentional, so the first-year skipper will miss Sunday's series finale and Ramirez will wait and see how things play out through the appeal process.
