 NEW YORK (AP) -New York Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca was suspended for two games and fined Monday following a weekend tantrum aimed at umpire Marvin Hudson.
Lo Duca appealed the penalty and cannot be disciplined until after a hearing is held.
He was ejected in the sixth inning of the Mets' 1-0 victory over Oakland on Saturday night after a called strike made the count against him 0-2.
His eyes bulging, Lo Duca was restrained by Mets manager Willie Randolph. When Lo Duca walked to the dugout, he threw his helmet, bat and elbow guard toward first base. Once he reached the bench, Lo Duca tossed his shin guards into foul territory and his chest protector, which got hung up on the dugout railing.
Bob Watson, baseball's vice president for discipline, said Lo Duca was suspended for ``inappropriate actions.''
