Sveum Suspended for 3 games.

10

Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for an encounter with umpires after Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati. The suspension, which will begin tonight, was announced by Bob Watson, vice president for on-field operations for Major League Baseball. Sveum took exception to the calls being made by home plate umpire Kevin Causey. At the end of the game, Sveum yelled at Causey as he walked off the field. When third-base umpire Brian Runge became involved, Runge and Sveum exchanged words. MLB called Sveume's actions "inappropriate and aggressive toward the umpires." We'll have to see if this was a shock to manager Ken Macha. Causey made a contreversial interference call at second base the night before and he called out five Brewers on strikes when he was behind the plate Sunday. Causey was called up from the minors to fill-in for a vacationing umpire
