NEW YORK (AP) -Mariners reliever Jorge Campillo was suspended for four games by Major League Baseball on Friday, a day after he threw at Vladimir Guerrero and was ejected.
Seattle manager John McLaren was also ejected and received a one-game suspension because both benches had previously been warned. He will sit out Friday night's game against Los Angeles, as will Campillo unless he appeals.
In the sixth inning of the Angels' 9-5 win Thursday night over the Mariners, Campillo whizzed a fastball past Guerrero's head, causing a scrum near the mound. No punches were thrown.
Guerrero, who had hit a two-run homer off Campillo in the fourth after ducking a fastball over his head, got up off the deck in the sixth, pointed at the right-hander and began walking to the mound. Seattle first baseman Ben Broussard quickly stepped in front of Guerrero and Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia also latched onto the star, who never got close to the mound.
Angels starter Jered Weaver had hit Kenji Johjima with a pitch in the fourth inning.
