PHOENIX -- Major League Baseball has upheld a two-game suspension of Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Skip Schumaker for his involvement in a fight with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Schumaker served the first game of his suspension Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks and was expected to be out of the lineup again Thursday against Colorado.

Schumaker was one of eight people suspended after the Dodgers and Diamondbacks traded beanballs on June 11. He could be seen pulling players off the pile after Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy triggered a bench-clearing brawl by hitting Zack Greinke after the Dodgers pitcher hit Arizona catcher Miguel Montero in the top half of the seventh inning.
