Major League Baseball suspended Atlanta Braves third baseman Josh Donaldson one game for his actions in Monday night's contest against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The suspension is on hold while Donaldson files an appeal.

He was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the first inning by Pirates starter Joe Musgrove. They exchanged words after the incident before Donaldson shoved catcher Elias Diaz, who was trying to keep the two apart. Benches cleared but no punches were thrown.

Donaldson, Musgrove and Pirates manager Clint Hurdle were ejected.
