Dustin Pedroia spiked and injured by Manny Machado

08 May 2017

Pedroia claimed he saw the replay only once and on the center-field video screen as he struggled to get to his feet and said "it's my job" to take hits while trying to turn a double play. "He passed the base, if you're asking me, and he injured the leader of our team". 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.

Pitching against the Orioles today is former O's prospect Eduardo Rodriguez, a player that causes much hand wringing amongst the fan base.

The Baltimore Orioles were on their way to a listless loss, trailing by six runs in the eighth inning. "I went and tried to grab him as soon as I can", Machado said.

Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts-who homered eight times at Camden Yards last season-continued to torment Orioles pitchers as he clubbed a three-run homer to left after Xander Bogaerts and rookie Andrew Benintendi (career-high five hits) both singled to begin the game.

Prime Minister May has said the United Kingdom could not remain part of the single market as it would mean not leaving the EU. They are failing to protect the United Kingdom economy by dragging the United Kingdom out of the Single Market.

"I don't even know what the rule is", Pedroia said.

This is the slide from Machado on Pedey.

But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis thought the fastball was intentionally directed at Machado's head. I'm going to keep doing me, keep playing baseball. "When you're cleaned out beyond second base, and the runner never held second base completely, to me, the rule failed tonight".

"The Red Sox are the only ones who have it, huh?"

Can the Senators respond to their NY wake up call?
Out of a possible 202:54 of playing time , they have led for 104 minutes, been tied for 94:43 and have trailed for just 4:11. For whatever reason, the Rangers just don't seem to have that killer instinct when they have an opportunity to bury a team.

The Red Sox second baseman followed up on that after the game.

I reached out to him, sent him a text to see how everything is all right. It's definitely a mishandled situation. After watching the video repeatedly, there's just no way to argue that the slide wasn't meant to deliberately take out his legs. When you consider who was involved, Machado's track-record and the fact that these two teams have a mutual disdain for one another - I would suspect that more is to come. "There was zero intention of (Machado) trying to hurt me". It's baseball, man. I can't speak for them.

Rodriguez (2-3, 4.04 ERA in his career against Baltimore) has given up seven runs and nine hits in 10 1/3 innings in his two starts. He's already bounced back actually, having allowed just a single run over six innings en route to picking up his first win of the season against the Rays last week. The lefty led off the inning by walking Gentry and was able to erase the baserunner on a 6-4-3 double play.

Edwin Encarnacion and Michael Brantley hit two-run home runs and Jose Ramirez added a solo shot as the Indians won their fifth straight game.

Kenny Miller , who signed a one-year contract extension with Rangers on Friday, netted a consolation for the hosts (81). He said: "The gap is getting even wider".

Anthony Rizzo tied it with a two-out, three-run homer in the ninth, and Kris Bryant hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, rallying the Chicago Cubs past the Cincinnati Reds 6-5 in Cincinnati.
