Ryan Dempster can maintain his innocence, but Major League Baseball has a different opinion. Dempster was suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount for “intentionally throwing at” Alex Rodriguez in the second inning Sunday night at Fenway Park, MLB announced Tuesday. The Red Sox pitcher won’t appeal the suspension, and he began serving it Tuesday night.
