Hawkins to be suspended three games

According to the Daily News' Mark Feinsand, LaTroy Hawkins will be suspended three games and fined $2,000 for throwing at Orioles' outfielder Luke Scott twice.

Derek Jeter was hit on the hand earlier in the game, and Scott felt this was retaliation. The benches cleared, but no punches were thrown.

This was the same penalty Kyle Farnsworth originally got for throwing at Manny Ramirez. Farnsworth was not ejected and eventually talked down his suspension to one game. Hawkins was ejected.

Hawkins will appeal the suspension.
