Major League Baseball on Wednesday reduced the suspension for Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper from four games to three games for charging the mound and fighting San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland.

Fox Sports and Fan Rag Sports both reported the reduction first.

According to USA Today, Harper’s camp believed the suspension should have been reduced because of the “sudden nature and natural escalation of the incident.”

The incident occurred in the eighth inning of Monday’s game. Strickland hit Harper with a pitch and then craziness exploded.
