Ortiz suspended 1 game by MLB for making contact with umpire

NEW YORK (AP) Boston designated hitter David Ortiz was suspended for one game and fined by Major League Baseball on Tuesday.

MLB said Ortiz was punished by senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. for making contact with umpire John Tumpane during the fifth inning of Sunday's game against Baltimore. Ortiz was ejected by Tumpane after the batter was upset that third base ump Jerry Meals called a swing on an attempted check of a 1-1 pitch.

"It's kind of a weird situation," Ortiz said before Tuesday night's game at Tampa Bay. "I'm arguing with the third base umpire, and then the home plate umpire is the one who ended up kicking me out of the game. I'm just appealing it and go from there."
