 NEW YORK (AP) -Houston pitcher Chad Qualls was suspended for three games and fined $3,000 by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, two days after he threw a baseball into the stands at the Los Angeles Angels.
Qualls asked the players' union to appeal the penalty, meaning he cannot disciplined until after a hearing is held and the appeal is decided.
Qualls was hit hard in the seventh inning Monday as the Astros wasted a 9-4 lead and went on to lose 10-9. After Orlando Cabrera hit an inning-ending grounder in the seventh, Qualls threw a ball into the stands.
The decision was made by Bob Watson, baseball's vice president for discipline.
