    Mother of Five Scared Straight After Heart Attack in her 40s
    Harper's suspension has been cut to three games.

    Nats star Bryce Harper will be suspended for only three games, after he reached an agreement with Major League Baseball Wednesday.

    As a result of the agreement, Harper dropped his appeal of his supension -- which had been four games. He began serving his suspension immediately.

    The punishment stems from a bench-clearing brawl on Monday after Harper was hit by a 98 mph fastball from Giants reliever Hunter Strickland.

    Strickland received a six-game suspension.
