NEW YORK -- San Francisco pitcher George Kontos has been suspended for three games by Major League Baseball, which said he intentionally threw a pitch at Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen, and Giants manager Bruce Bochy has been banned for one.

MLB senior vice-president Joe Garagiola made the decision Wednesday, a day after Kontos was ejected from the Pirates' 8-2 win for hitting McCutchen with a pitch in the eighth inning.

A warning had been issued earlier in the game. Four batters were hit, including Pittsburgh's Pedro Alvarez by Tim Lincecum, and San Francisco's Gregor Blanco by Gerrit Cole and Marco Scutaro by Tony Watson.

Kontos was optioned Wednesday to Triple-A Fresno and would serve the suspension only when he is back in the major leagues. If he files an appeal, the penalty would be delayed until after a hearing and decision.

Bochy was penalized for what MLB said was Kontos's intentional actions. He was to serve the suspension Wednesday night.
