Berkman Awaits Suspension

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - A Major League Baseball official says Astros
first baseman Lance Berkman will be suspended for his actions
following his ejection from Tuesday's game against Colorado.
V-P for Discipline Bob Watson says he is trying to determine the
length of Berkman's suspension.
Berkman was ejected in the eighth inning for arguing a third
strike. Afterward, he threw his batting glove and an equipment bag
onto the field from the dugout.
In the ninth inning, Berkman returned to the field when the
benches emptied after Rockies pitcher Manny Corpas hit Astros
outfielder Carlos Lee with a pitch. Watson said Berkman violated
the rules by returning and warned that "there will be
consequences."
