NEW YORK, April 28 (UPI) -- Chicago Cubs ace Kerry Wood has been suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount for his actions April 17 against Cincinnati.
Major League Baseball vice-president of on-field operations Bob Watson also suspended Cubs manager Dusty Baker one game and fined him an undisclosed amount for an incident on April 16 against Cincinnati.
Wood charged home plate umpire Eric Cooper after yielding two runs in the top of the ninth inning in a 3-2 loss to the Reds.
Jason LaRue hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game and Wily Pena doubled home Dunn with the go-ahead run.
When Wood left the mound, he charged toward Cooper and was ejected.
Baker became incensed when home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor took a double away from Cubs pinch-hitter Ramon Martinez after ruling that Baker failed to inform him of a double switch.
