Dustin Pedroia grabs Manny Machado's back in weird sequence

In the eighth inning of Sunday's game, Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes threw a pitch behind Machado and near his head.

With the Red Sox starting lefty Eduardo Rodriguez, Showalter again left Kim on the bench to begin the game. Machado, of course, drew Boston's ire Friday for his takeout slide that injured Dustin Pedroia, and Barnes immediately was ejected for what appeared to be a retaliatory act.

The Orioles go for the sweep against the Red Sox today as Gausman gets the start and former Orioles prospect Edwardo Rodriguez gets the start for Boston. Pedroia has missed the last two games, and because swelling is still present he's expected to undergo tests Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital. The offense plated only 2 runs combined over the first two games of the series.

Overall, if you go back and look at the play Machado didn't look like he had any intent to injure Pedroia. "But the fact that he still has the symptoms he does, we're going to rule everything out".

Since there are no lie detectors in baseball, it's impossible to know with complete certainty whether a pitcher is lying when he says he never meant to throw at a player. "Fact is, we have a player who is not in the lineup tonight as a result of the slide", Farrell said.

But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis thought the fastball was intentionally directed at Machado's head. "It was a late slide".

Pedroia said Machado sent him a text after the game, offering an apology. Young would get on via a fielder's choice and then move to second on a wild pitch before heading over to third on a swinging bunt single from Pablo Sandoval.

For Pedroia, who is unquestionably the leader of this team seems to be okay, the rumor is that this is a minimal injury.

"It's baseball", he said.

"I just said, 'Thanks for reaching out, ' " said Pedroia. All I know was I was trying to go up and in, trying to get some weak contact with Jones on first.

"It's a short term memory that we need to have and that's what we're going to do here", Machado told reporters Sunday. I love Manny Machado. I've turned the best double play in the major leagues for 11 years. When you're cleaned out, beyond second base, and the runner never held second base completely, to me the rule failed tonight.

Mychal Givens followed with two ideal innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save. The Red Sox have scored zero runs in two of their last three games and have a pitcher on the hill in Wright who can be tagged.
