Nick Hundley and Yasiel Puig were handed their reprimands Thursday afternoon for their central involvement in the Dodgers-Giants scuffle Tuesday night, with Puig incurring a fine plus a two-game suspension.

'Monster Hunter' game no longer available in China
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism, which regulates the video games industry, did not respond to requests for comment. Tencent also said players who purchased " Monster Hunter: World" were entitled to a full refund until August 20.

After fouling a pitch off, Puig and catcher Nick Hundley exchanged words. Both players will be fined, but Hundley will be allowed to play as normal.

Unless appealed, the suspension of Puig is scheduled to begin Friday as the Dodgers take on the Seattle Mariners. Puig appeared frustrated with himself, slapping his bat before returning to the batter's box. Puig and Hundley were momentarily separated, but Puig ducked around teammates, coaches and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts before reaching back to hit Hundley. Puig turned around and walked toward Hundley, the catcher stood up and they stood face to face and argued for a moment before Puig shoved Hundley twice. Our guess is that the league felt Puig deserved a greater punishment for making contact first - and for going out of his way to land a slap to Hundley's mask. Lombard and Hundley briefly ended up on the grass.
