Red Sox throw behind Manny Machado's head, still lose series to Orioles

Red Sox throw behind Manny Machado's head, still lose series to Orioles”

Reliever Matt Barnes was ejected from the game in the eighth inning after throwing a 90-mph pitch behind Machado's head.

BALTIMORE (AP) - A spikes-high slide. We'll get to the reason why shortly. "If they tell me, 'Don't do this or that, ' I'm going to listen to them because they've been around the game and they've seen things I haven't seen". If you're going to protect guys, you do it right away. "You don't want to get hit in the head", Machado 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".

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

"I wasn't expecting anything, no", Machado told reporters Sunday of retaliation.

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.

Analysts await Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:CTB) to report earnings on April , 27 for the fiscal quarter ending Mar 2017. The overall volume in the last trading session was 3.87 million shares, versus the average volume of 2.62 million shares.

Barnes denied he was trying to hit Machado, but everyone knows otherwise.

Boston manager John Farrell - who on Saturday called the league office to discuss about what he called "an illegal slide" by Machado - insisted Barnes' wayward pitch was nothing more than an accident. But even he conceded that after Machado came within inches of a possibly serious head injury, he would feel as the Orioles did had their roles been reversed. "Four hits in a row", said Gausman, who has failed to complete six innings in all but one of his five starts this season. He mouthed the words "It's not me", evidently trying to show he was not seeking revenge.

Note, too, that Pedroia said he'd expect to get drilled if he spiked Machado - while Machado said he expected nothing.

After the game resumed, Machado hit Joe Kelly's first pitch for an RBI double to make it 6-1.

But Machado, who once threw a bat at Fernando Abad, knows what his reputation is in this game.

Rodriguez (1-1) allowed one hit over six innings, walking five and striking out seven.

Gausman (1-2, 7.50 ERA), who took the mound after lasting just 2 2-3 innings in his previous start, settled down to allow just one run over the next 3 1-3 innings - a fifth-inning solo home run by Mitch Moreland. "It's always me. Manny always does something wrong", Machado said. Love watching him. If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I'd know I'm going to get drilled.

Red Sox: Pablo Sandoval filled in at second after Pedroia left. The Red Sox veteran has missed the last two games and will receive further testing in Boston on Monday.

"He's trying to take a four-seamer in above his hands and the pitch got away from him", Farrell said.
