Don Mattingly suspended two games

BY foxsports • August 18, 2012

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has been suspended for two games, beginning with Saturday night's game against the Braves.

Mattingly was also given an undisclosed fine ''for excessive arguing'' with home plate umpire Angel Campos in Thursday's 10-6 loss in Pittsburgh. Mattingly and outfielder Matt Kemp were ejected in the game.

The suspension was announced Saturday by Joe Garagiola Jr., senior vice president of standards and on-field operations for MLB.

No suspension or fine was announced for Kemp.

Dodgers bench coach Trey Hillman will fill in for Mattingly, who said Friday he was expecting to be suspended ''a game or two.''
