Berkman was ejected Tuesday night in the eighth inning after arguing a third strike. He then threw his batting glove and an equipment bag onto the field from the dugout.
He violated rules by returning in the ninth inning when the benches emptied after the Rockies' Manny Corpas hit Houston's Carlos Lee with a pitch. The Astros won 4-1.
Berkman's suspension, unless appealed, is scheduled to begin Friday night when the Astros play the Chicago White Sox.
