NEW YORK, June 9 (UPI) -- Washington outfielder Marlon Byrd was suspended for two games Thursday for knocking umpire Joe Brinkman to the ground last Saturday.

Byrd appealed the suspension, which had been scheduled to begin Thursday night.

Byrd was called out on a check-swing third strike against Florida and when Byrd realized he was out, he began yelling at first base umpire Bill Miller.

The confrontation continued as Byrd headed out to play left field in the top of the seventh and he was eventually ejected by Miller.

As Byrd headed toward Miller, he ran into Brinkman and knocked the umpire to the ground.
