Cards pitcher Lohse suspended 5 games

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse was suspended five games by Major League Baseball on Wednesday for throwing a fastball past the head of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Edinson Volquez last weekend.
Lohse appealed the penalty, and can continue to play until a hearing is held.
MLB disciplinarian Bob Watson also fined Lohse an undisclosed amount.
St. Louis is second in the National League wild card race. The Cardinals played Pittsburgh at home on Wednesday.
Trouble between Lohse and Volquez started in the fifth inning of the Reds' 7-3 win on Sunday at Cincinnati.
Lohse batted in the top half with two runners on base, and Volquez threw up-and-in to the Cardinals pitcher. Volquez led the bottom half and Lohse's first pitch was high-and-tight, leading plate umpire Greg Gibson to warn both teams.
