Both benches were warned Tuesday after Burnett knocked Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz to the ground with a fastball in the fifth inning -- one inning after Rangers starter Vicente Padilla hit Mark Teixeira for the second time in the game.That Padilla was place on waivers afterwards is immaterial. He should have been suspended, too.
Padilla was not suspended for his role in Tuesday's game, but was fined an undisclosed amount.
"That's interesting," Burnett said of the discrepancy. "But that's their decision."
