Manny Machado Shows Restraint After Targeting: "They Think I'm The Villain"

Doyle BarkerMay 04, 2017

The Red Sox second baseman could be seen telling Machado that he had nothing to do with the high pitch, but Orioles closer Zach Britton believes that says worlds about Pedroia's leadership. Definitely, [a] mishandled situation.

"Bottom line is this: If that slide [Friday] night is not deemed an illegal slide, we should just get rid of the rule", Farrell said.

"He wasn't very crisp early and they made him pay for it", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of Gausman.

When asked for his own thoughts after the play, Pedroia said: "I'm not the baseball police, man". Machado came up again in the eighth, and Barnes' pitch whizzed behind Machado and hit his bat. "That's not how you do that, man", Pedroia told reporters after the game.

Mychal Givens pitched two flawless innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save. Love watching him. If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I'd know I'm going to get drilled.

A tempestuous three-game series between these AL East foes wound up with Orioles star Manny Machado seeing a fastball sail behind his head and Matt Barnes getting ejected for throwing it Sunday in Boston's 6-2 victory.

RED SOX KEY TRENDS: The Red Sox have been a poor bet to win on the road, losing 11 of their last 14 games away from Fenway Park. I think everyone knows out there. No matter what the circumstance, you don't throw near a hitter's head. "Whatever happened today, I'm going to keep (being) me".

He noted that he had observed a dugout conversation after Rodriguez's three inside pitches against Machado, then later on someone throws at Machado.

Kevin Gausman has often had success against the Red Sox, but not yesterday. If you're going to protect guys, you do it right away.

Wright (1-2) allowed four runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. "Luckily, my second at-bat, he just left one up that I put a good swing on".

Rodriguez is just the second starting pitcher to hold the Orioles lineup scoreless this season.

Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez homered on successive pitches in a four-run first inning, and Andrew Benintendi had a career-high five hits to help Boston avert a three-game sweep. First baseman Mitch Moreland hit the Red Sox's third home run in the fifth. The lefty allowed just one hit (along with five walks) over six scoreless innings.

Although Red Sox manager John Farrell came out to protest the ejection, the intent of the pitch was so obvious that any argument to the contrary does not even need to be considered.

First baseman Chris Davis led off the fifth with the Orioles' first hit, a single to right.
