Phils' 3b coach Smith suspended

Philadelphia Phillies third base coach Steve Smith was suspended two games and fined an undisclosed amount Thursday.

Smith received the punishment for his inappropriate actions against
umpires Chris Guccione and Bill Welke at the end of the seventh inning
during last Friday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.

Smith is scheduled to begin his suspension in Friday’s series opener at the New York Mets. The Phillies trail the Mets by three games in the National League East.
