BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman lost an appeal of his six-game suspension for throwing near the head of Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria and he began serving it Wednesday.

Workman was ejected from a May 30 game against the Rays for throwing up and behind third baseman Longoria. The right-hander appealed and it was upheld on Wednesday.

Earlier in that game, both teams were issued warnings by home plate umpire Dan Bellino when Rays left-hander David Price hit David Ortiz near the right hip with the first pitch in the opening inning.

Workman made three starts after his appeal. He's 1-0 with a 2.88 ERA in eight games.
