NEW YORK (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum has
been suspended three games and fined an undisclosed sum for yelling
at umpires after a game in Cinncinnati.

Baseball disciplinarian Bob Watson on Monday cited Sveum's
"inappropriate and aggressive actions" toward the umpires after the Reds' 5-3 win Sunday night. The suspension began with Tuesday night's game at Pittsburgh.

Sveum was angry over the way the strike zone was called. The
umpires have to walk past the Brewers' dugout to reach their dressing room. Sveum yelled at plate umpire Kevin Causey, prompting crew chief Derryl Cousins to step in.
