Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is suspended one game for confrontation with Padres' Andy Green

Before Saturday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, he had never been suspended in his life.

“I didn’t get suspended in school,” Roberts said before his team faced the Padres at Petco Park. “I didn’t get suspended in sports. There’s a first time for everything, I guess.”

Roberts reached this unfortunate milestone when Major League Baseball doled out a one-game suspension for Roberts’ incident with San Diego manager Andy Green on Friday night. Roberts accepted the punishment for Saturday’s game.

“It’s what Major League Baseball felt was the right course of action,” Roberts said. “So I support it.”
