Mets manager Manuel suspended after last week's ejection

CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- Mets manager Jerry Manuel was given a one-game suspension and has been fined an undisclosed amount following an ejection from a game last week.

Manuel is missing Tuesday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Bench coach Dave Jauss is filling in as New York begins a homestand following a 2-9 road trip.

Manuel was tossed from Friday night's 6-1 win at Los Angeles after arguing a call by first base umpire Doug Eddings.

Luis Castillo was called out at first, though replays showed Castillo's foot was already on the bag before shortstop Rafael Furcal's throw reached James Loney's glove.

Manuel came on the field and gestured wildly at Eddings, who gave Manuel his third ejection of the season.
