Orioles' good run of form rolls on with victory against Red Sox

The text apology must have resonated with Pedroia because he was seen mouthing "It's not me" toward Machado when Boston manager John Farrell was arguing Barnes' ejection.

The right-hander allowed the first two batters of the game to single and the next two to homer as the Orioles fell behind 4-0 with no outs and never recovered, falling to the visiting Boston Red Sox 6-2 before an announced 35,522 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. It caught the bat extended over Machado's right shoulder instead, strangely creating a foul ball that bounced off the bat and into Machado's back. With men on first and second, Pedroia lifted a deep fly ball to left field, resulting in an out and Vasquez advancing to third on a risky tag-up play.

Mychal Givens followed with two flawless innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save. Pedroia continued to experience swelling in his left ankle and surgically repaired left knee and will undergo an MRI exam Monday after the Red Sox return home.

The Orioles stood on the verge of a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. 2, 3, and 4 hitters Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland combined to go 0-for-12, including 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. Toward the end of the exchange, Pedroia clearly told Machado "that's not me, that's them".

"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)".

Missed call in LeBron's Game 4 late three
The Pacers rallied from a 13-point deficit to tie the game but James would answer right back with a go-ahead 3. LeBron finished Game 4 with a game-high 33 points to go along with 10 rebounds, four assists and four steals.

Machado said he and Pedroia are on good terms. "Intentionally or not you don't want to get hit in the head", Machado said.

Another day, another poor performance for the Red Sox offense. "That's my job. That's not the first time I've been hit". OF Joey Rickard (sprained finger) took soft-toss swings in a session manager Buck Showalter called "very encouraging".

Machado got his own revenge of a sort by crushing an RBI double over the head of Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to conclude the plate appearance - the first Orioles run in the game.

With Farrell fired up, Red Sox third base coach Brian Butterfield was as well.

Bundy gave up a leadoff single in each of the first three innings, and each time he avoided damage with a double-play ball.

MINNEAPOLIS - Justin Verlander stumbled again, Miguel Cabrera left after straining his right groin and the Detroit Tigers wasted a three-run lead against the Minnesota Twins, who burst ahead when Eddie Rosario hit a three-run homer that capped a six-run sixth inning.

"I just said, 'Thanks for reaching out,"' said Pedroia, who was replaced by Marco Hernandez at second base Saturday. You know that. It's not me. "At this point, it warrants a further look", Farrell said.

Orioles All-Star closer Zach Britton took issue with Pedroia's apparent in-game apology to Machado, describing Pedroia's "it's not me" message regarding Barnes's decision as "even more frustrating".

Machado ended up making the last out of the game, hitting a popup on a pitch from Craig Kimbrel, who got his seventh save.
