Don Mattingly Suspended Two Games, Matt Kemp Avoids Suspension For Thursday Outburst

Following the wild events that took place in Pittsburgh this past week, Major League Baseball has announced a two-game suspension for Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. He will serve the suspension immediately, meaning he will not be in the dugout for the two remaining Braves games this weekend. Bench coach Trey Hillman will serve as the acting manager until Monday.

Here is SB Nation's Dodgers blog, True Blue LA, with the news this afternoon.

There was some good news today: Matt Kemp will not be suspended for his actions against the umpires in Pittsburgh. Many had wondered if the slugging outfielder would miss some time after needing to be restrained by his teammates, but MLB decided his ejection from the game was enough punishment.

First pitch for tonight's game in Atlanta is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET/4:10 p.m. PT. It'll be Aaron Harang and Ben Sheets on the mound.
