Quote:
Major League Baseball suspended umpire Fieldin Culbreth for two games on Friday because he was in charge of the crew that allowed Astros manager Bo Porter to improperly switch relievers in the middle of an inning.

Culbreth and the rest of his crew - Brian O'Nora, Bill Welke and Adrian Johnson - were also fined an undisclosed amount after MLB admitted its umps goofed for the second straight day.

''The rule covering pitching changes was not applied correctly by the umpiring crew,'' MLB said in a statement.

Bertie: The Astros had a new reliever penciled in to start an inning, before he threw a pitch the Angels changed their pinch hitter, which they are allowed to do, Porter brought in another reliever. Somewhere in the rulebook it states that the first pitcher has to face at least one batter, barring illness or injury. Angels manager Mike Soscia knew it and was out of the dugout and all over the umpiring crew.
