PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Philadelphia Phillies closer Billy Wagner is suspended for two games by major league baseball and fined an undisclosed amount because of an incident with the New York Mets last weekend.

Wagner was thrown out of the game by umpire Dana DeMuth in the ninth inning of Philadelphia's 11-to-9, 13-inning win over the Mets last Saturday.

After Wagner wasted a two-run lead, DeMuth ejected him following two high-and-inside fastballs to Cliff Floyd. The ejection was the first of Wagner's career, and he threw his cap across the field and a cooler and stack of cups out of the dugout onto the field. He also criticized DeMuth in a profanity-laced tirade after the game. He apologized on Monday for his tirade against DeMuth.
