(Newser) – Roger Clemens was suspended five games and Joe Torre one for their part in Tuesday's contentious Yankees/Blue Jays game. The combative three-game series saw a number of incidents, culminating with Roger Clemens beaning Alex Rios in the back as payback for pitches thrown at A-Rod.

The bad-blood stems from an incident May 30 when A-Rod shouted "Ha!!" and successfully distracted Toronto third baseman Howie Clark, causing him to drop the ball.
