ST. PETERSBURG, Fla — Boston designated hitter David Ortiz was suspended for one game and fined Tuesday by Major League Baseball.

MLB said Ortiz was punished by senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. for making contact with umpire John Tumpane during the fifth inning of Sunday’s game against Baltimore. Ortiz was ejected by Tumpane while upset that third-base umpire Jerry Meals called a swing on an attempted check of a 1-1 pitch.

“It’s kind of a weird situation,” Ortiz said. “I’m arguing with the third-base umpire, and then the home plate umpire is the one who ended up kicking me out of the game. I’m just appealing it and go from there.”

Ortiz said he doesn’t remember making contact with Tumpane.
