NEW YORK - D.C. United will be without Andy Najar for the Eastern Conference final after Major League Soccer suspended the defender for two games.

Najar picked up a second yellow card in the opener of United's conference semifinal against New York when he threw the ball at referee Jair Marrufo after committing a foul. The resulting red card came with a one-game ban, and the league's disciplinary committee tacked on two more games and a fine on Friday.

Najar missed United's 1-0 victory over the Red Bulls on Thursday night, and will serve the rest of his suspension when his team takes on the Houston Dynamo on Sunday and Nov. 18. The MLS Players Union appealed the punishment but Commissioner Don Garber sided with the disciplinary committee.
