Dustin Pedroia grabs Manny Machado's back in freaky sequence

During the eighth inning, Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes threw a high fastball at Machado's head.

This episode of Red Sox-Orioles anger should die here, after any presumed discipline the league finds suitable for Barnes is delivered. You can see the ball hit his bat, not where you expect a foul ball usually, but that's the way it goes. "Um, I'm sorry that it kind of ended up that high and fortunately it didn't not hit him but I think he's got every right to be mad that that one got loose".

When it came to enacting revenge for Manny Machado's slide into Dustin Pedroia, however, the Red Sox' execution was awful. If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I know I'm going to get drilled.

During Farrell's argument with Fletcher, Pedroia was standing on the top step in the dugout and whistled to catch Machado's attention. 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.

Returning in 2017 after missing nearly all of the previous season due to shoulder surgery, the injury comes at a less than ideal time for the Red Sox, who are also missing Dustin Pedroia. Toward the end of the exchange, Pedroia clearly told Machado "that's not me, that's them".

The Orioles' 6-2 loss before 35,522 at Oriole Park was overshadowed by Machado, just as the first game of the series was. He just made a bad slide and did hurt me. "I've been through a few organizations right now", he said through a translator.

Pedroia: "That's not how you do that".

Taco Bell Canada Plans to Start Serving Alcohol in 2017
Across North America, Taco Bell serves more than 40 million customers per week and there are almost 200 locations in Canada. Consumers aged 19-plus can expect a selection of beer on the menu, with the potential for more beverages to be added later.

And of course, just about every pitcher denies that there was any ulterior objective in a pitch that hits a batter, no matter the backstory. "There was zero intention of (Machado) trying to hurt me". I love watching him.

"People are going to think what they want", Barnes said.

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. Machado acknowledged Pedroia and later pointed to his head. "If you're going to protect guys, you do it right away".

Following the game, Pedroia expressed frustration with what had happened, saying the Red Sox should have handled it better. That's baseball. I get drilled, and I go to first base. "I love playing against him". "I thought I did a good job of settling in after that but the damage was already done".

When Machado batted in the sixth inning, Eduardo Rodriguez threw three pitches down and in near the knees.

Meanwhile, Orioles manager Buck Showalter understandably had a different view of things.
