Randy, Torre Suspended

On the second game of the Indians-Yankees series, Yankees starter Randy Johnson and manager Joe Torre were ejected in the seventh inning because Randy threw a ball high and inside on Indians batter Eduardo Perez.
The beanball wars started when Cleveland pitcher Jason Johnson threw a couple balls high and inside to Derek Jeter with one of them forcing Jeter to hit the dirt. Later on in the game when Jorge Posada was at bat, Johnson hit him sending a mild verbal war as Posada walked down to first base.
Umpire Dana DeMuth warned both benches to immediately stop throwing at the batters. But for some one like Randy Johnson, you don't hit his catcher and get away with it. His first pitch to Eduardo Perez was high and inside prompting an immediate ejection to Randy and Torre.
Reports now say that Randy Johnson will miss at least five games, or in a pitchers case, one start. Joe Torre will be out tonight as he serves his one-game suspension as the Yankees take on the Nationals.
Yankees went on to defeat the Indians 6-1 and take a lead in the AL East.

Tonight's Game:
Yankees @ Nationals 7:05 EST
Jaret Wright (3-4, 4.44 ERA) vs. Shawn Hill (1-1, 1.80 ERA)
