NEW YORK (AP) - Baltimore manager Dave Trembley has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount following
his ejection in the first inning of the Orioles' game against the Seattle Mariners earlier this week.
Bob Watson, Major League Baseball's vice president in charge of discipline, said Friday that Trembley violated a rule that states an ejected manager must take no further part in a game.
Trembley was tossed Tuesday night for arguing a baserunning call. He told reporters after the game that when Luke Scott came into the clubhouse, Trembley told him to "get me a couple" runs.
Scott ended up with seven RBIs in the Orioles' 12-4 win.
Trembley was scheduled to begin serving the suspension Friday night against Toronto.
