LOS ANGELES -- Major League Baseball has suspended Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw along with manager Joe Torre and bench coach Bob Schaefer as a result of incidents that occurred in Tuesday's game against the San Francisco Giants.

Kershaw has been given a five-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing at Giants outfielder Aaron Rowand in the seventh inning. The lefty has already filed an appeal, which will delay the start of the suspension until the process is complete.

Torre is suspended for one game and an undisclosed fine due to Kershaw's actions and served the suspension on Wednesday, while Schaefer also received a one-game suspension and a fine. Schaefer is expected to sit out Thursday's game against the Mets.

The Dodgers lost Tuesday's game, 7-5, after reliever George Sherrill allowed a two-run double to Andres Torres in the ninth inning.

Hitting coach Don Mattingly had been acting manager after the ejections and was forced to lift closer Jonathan Broxton from the game after accidentally making two visits to the mound in one trip.
