Boston's Matt Barnes ejected after pitch sails behind Manny Machado

May 04, 2017, 22:23

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.

In the eighth inning, Barnes nearly threw at Machado's head but instead hit Machado's bat for a foul ball. If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I know I'm going to get drilled.

Machado's late slide into second base injured Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, and reliever Matt Barnes might have tried to send a message during the eighth inning of Sunday's game. Pedroia clearly wasn't happy about it.

Machado texted Pedroia afterwards, saying he was sorry and that he wasn't trying to injure him.

The rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles soared to a new level over the weekend, and there's no telling what might happen when they soon meet again.

Rodriguez led the Sox to a 6-2 win over the O's to avoid a series sweep and head back to Fenway Park with at least a little momentum after losing the first two games.

"You put yourself in a hole right out of the gate", Gausman said. "It's never me. I just go out there and play the game that I love, leave it on the field and I play with heart".

"As a player that doesn't have the most service time in this room, when a guy like Adam Jones tells me to do something or not to do something, I'm going to do (what he says). That's not how you do that, man", Pedroia told reporters afterward.

When Machado batted in the sixth inning, Eduardo Rodriguez threw three pitches down and in near the knees. There's zero intentions of him trying to hurt me. "I've turned double plays in the big leagues for 11 years".

"People are going to think what they want, " Barnes said, and that is probably the only thing he said that anyone can be certain is true. But I think if you look at the attack plan at our right-handed pitchers, there's an area in above the hands that you're trying to go to.

Let's see if that holds true on both sides. Yeah, I apologized to him.

Mychal Givens pitched two ideal innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save. Machado acknowledged Pedroia and later pointed to his head. That's baseball, man. I'm not mad at him. "I thought I did a good slide". OF Joey Rickard (sprained finger) took soft-toss swings in a session manager Buck Showalter called "very encouraging".
