    SEATTLE (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is appealing his two-game suspension for fighting and inciting a benches-clearing incident against San Francisco.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Friday that Puig was in the process of appealing. Puig was suspended Thursday by Major League Baseball after he took a swing at Giants catch Nick Hundley in the seventh inning of the Dodgers’ 2-1 home loss Tuesday. Hundley was fined.Puig will be eligible to play during the appeal. He was not in the starting lineup for Friday’s series opener in Seattle http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-lou-brock-jersey , but Roberts said he would have Puig in the lineup in the next few games.The fracas started when Puig swatted his bat in frustration after fouling off a pitch from Tony Watson, and Hundley said something to the slugger while still in his crouch. Puig turned around and walked toward Hundley, the catcher stood up, and they argued face to face before Puig shoved Hundley twice.That brought players out of the benches and bullpens. Puig and Hundley were momentarily separated, but Puig ducked around teammates, coaches and Roberts before reaching back to hit Hundley. He smacked Hundley with an open hand across the front of his catcher’s mask. The Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals will play a doubleheader Tuesday — as long as the field at Citizens Bank Park is dried out by then.The teams saw their series opener postponed Monday night due to a soggy field that was deemed unplayable. The first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader is set for a 3:05 p.m. ET start.The damage to the infield at Citizens Bank Park happened Friday when the field was left uncovered overnight and the area got more rain than was anticipated, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The grounds crew worked to dry out the field Monday afternoon and even brought in blowtorches in an effort to make the field playable.Article continues below ...“In retrospect Ken Boyer Jersey , had I known that it was going to be this much rain, we would have tarped it,” Phillies vice president of business affairs Howard Smith told MLB.com. “We didn’t. Damage was done, and now we’re just playing catch-up.”The Phillies, meanwhile, have been cold on the field in the last month. The team has not won a series since sweeping the Miami Marlins in early August and is 11-20 in its last 31 games.The Phillies (74-68) are five games behind the Atlanta Braves in the National League East and five games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card spot.“I believe in the talent in that room,” first-year Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters after a 6-4 loss to the New York Mets on Sunday. “I’ve said that from Day 1. That doesn’t change when we don’t perform at our best http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-mike-shannon-jersey , and we didn’t on this road trip.”The Phillies dropped four of their six games against the Mets and Marlins last week, and they’re 28-32 against NL East foes this year (including an 8-8 mark against the Nationals). However, the Phillies are returning home to Citizens Bank Park, where they are 43-26 in 2018.The Nationals (71-72), who are eight games back of the Braves, have not played since Saturday. Their Sunday series finale against the Chicago Cubs was rained out at Nationals Park. Washington’s Erick Fedde (1-3, 6.00 ERA) and Philadelphia’s Jake Arrieta (10-9 Whitey Herzog Jersey , 3.61) were set to face each other on Monday night, while Tanner Roark (8-15, 4.23) and Nick Pivetta (7-11, 4.66) were the scheduled starters for Tuesday’s game.Fedde has made seven starts this season, and he returned to the Nationals last week after missing two months with a shoulder injury. He gave up four runs (all in the second inning) on four hits and had seven strikeouts in five innings against the St. Louis Cardinals last Tuesday.“I think just that second inning got away from me a little bit,” Fedde told mlb.com after the game. “I started getting a little slider happy with some of the guys that came up, and I think I just let it take over.”Fedde http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-vince-coleman-jersey , 25, is 1-1 with a 6.55 ERA in two career starts against the Phillies.Arrieta was strong in his last outing, notching 11 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings against the Marlins. The veteran right-hander has allowed two homers in each of his last three starts, including in a three-inning performance against the Nationals on Aug. 29.Arrieta is 1-2 with a 5.25 ERA in 12 career starts against Washington.
