Pedroia Injured as Red Sox Fall 2-0 to Baltimore

Machado was also involved in a spat with the Red Sox last September, when Rick Porcello had yet to allow a baserunner in the fourth inning against the Orioles and plunked Machado in the back. Mancini hit his second homer of the season against Wright, a two-run shot which tied the game.

Following anger at Baltimroe third baseman Manny Machado's slide into Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia's knee, Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes threw a fastball in the eighth inning of Sunday's game that almost hit Machado square in the head.

As Machado returned to home plate, Pedroia got his attention from the dugout and the two exchanged some words. You don't have to be a master lip-reader to figure out that he was telling Machado he did not agree with his teammate's decision.

That the outcome was wrong, specifically.

And on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles, the former Arkansas Razorbacks outfielder found himself being mentioned alongside baseball royalty after going 5-for-5 in Boston's 6-2 victory. You're just mature about the situation. OF Seth Smith (strained right hamstring) showed improvement Friday, so the team delayed a decision of whether to put him on the DL. In baseball, if you're going to take somebody out, especially a player who is the heart and soul of his team, be prepared for retaliation. "He just made a bad slide". It's baseball, man. I can't speak for them.

Watching the slide, and Machado's reaction afterward, I just don't think there was anything intentional here. I know there's a component to the rule that says he's got to deliberately and willfully attempt a double play. Yeah, I apologized to him. If he just slid into the part of the base that I gave him, he'd have been safe. I don't want to get suspended. The Sox tried to even the score with Machado and the O's on Sunday and failed dangerously. Right-hander Matt Barnes threw a pitch behind Machado's head that ticked his bat. "I like the fact that he didn't implode and got us to the sixth inning and competed like we know Kevin can".

It also fills a gap that troubled some crop and livestock producers across USA farm states, which heavily factored into Mr. He also promised to reach out to Democrats, and several Democratic senators have said they will vote for him.

Let's see if that holds true on both sides.

"I've turned double plays in the big leagues for 11 years", Pedroia said, playing off the incident as nothing out of the ordinary.

In the eighth inning on Sunday with the Red Sox up 6-0, Barnes threw a pitch that went behind Machado's head and hit off his bat.

Barnes was ejected by umpire Andy Fletcher.

The Baltimore Orioles won again on Friday night, 2-0 over the Boston Red Sox behind 7-plus shutout innings from Dylan Bundy and clutch bullpen work by Mychal Givens, Donnie Hart, and Brad Brach. He still hasn't played since that slide.

Farrell told reporters that righty-hitting utilityman Josh Rutledge could return from the disabled list by the end of the week. "I thought I did a good job of settling in after that but the damage was already done". "Whatever happened today, I'm going to keep (being) me". "I look up to a guy like that". Many acknowledge how far past the bag Machado went on the slide.
