NEW YORK (AP) — Umpire Joe West has been suspended for one game without pay for grabbing the jersey of Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon.

Major League Baseball executive Joe Torre said in a statement today that West “admitted that there was a better way to handle the situation.”

Papelbon was suspended seven games and fined Monday for making a lewd gesture and then bumping West during a loss to Miami on Sunday.
