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.

Durant and Rudy Gobert exchanged shoves and words , resulting in a flagrant foul and a technical foul for the Golden State star. They seized the lead for the first time in the series when they went up 48-47 in the second period, and led 50-49 at halftime.

"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?"

The Swede got his fourth goal of the postseason, matching his career high from the 2015 playoffs in 10 fewer games. His third-period goal made it a two-goal score and it was his sixth goal in seven playoff games.

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.
