The Los Angeles Dodgers had a day to calm down after their angry series finale in Pittsburgh, but word on any possible discipline for their actions won't come until at least the weekend.

Manager Don Mattingly on Friday spoke with former Dodgers manager Joe Torre, now in charge of discipline for Major League Baseball. Both Mattingly and Kemp were ejected Thursday and aggressively argued with home plate umpire Angel Campos. Mattingly knows some punishment is coming, at least for him.

"I still think it's going to happen, it sounds like, just not tonight. I got a stay of execution for one more day," Mattingly said Friday in Atlanta. "I would say a game or two, it looks like."

Mattingly said he expected a suspension for himself but argued with Torre on behalf of Kemp, who said he was cheering for his teammate.

"He did hold his temper in check -- that's my response," Mattingly said. "Matt didn't do anything wrong. What happened was simple banter that's been going on as long as I've been in the game, guys chirping from the dugout. When he said, 'That's enough, no more,' Matt cheered for 'Dre. That's where the problem is for me. They can do something to me."

Kemp went 0-for-4 Friday night in an 11-inning loss to the Braves.
