NEW YORK (AP) -- Angels reliever Brendan Donnelly was suspended 10 days by Major League Baseball on Friday for having pine tar on his glove during a game against the Washington Nationals.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia and Nationals manager Frank Robinson were suspended for one game apiece and fined an undisclosed amount. The two managers screamed at each other after Robinson had umpires inspect Donnelly's glove for a foreign substance in the top of the seventh inning during the Nationals' 6-3 victory Tuesday.

Donnelly was ejected without throwing a pitch, and Scioscia then came face-to-face with Robinson. Both benches emptied and several players pushed and shoved each other.

I think the punishment fits the crime. Although it's rarely enforced, it is considered cheating and I think they did the right thing by handing down the suspension.
