ATLANTA (AP) Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell didn't see a shiny substance on reliever Will Smith's right arm until it was too late.

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez had already emerged from the dugout to ask umpires to check to see if Smith was cheating.

"Fredi did what he had to do, I understand," Counsell said. "He's competing, he's trying to win a game. That's what he thought he had to do."
