Orioles' Zach Britton Calls Out Dustin Pedroia After Manny Machado Dust-Up

May 04, 2017, 22:24

Sandoval exited in the middle of the seventh inning, and is listed as day-to-day.

The Red Sox clearly felt comfortable going for retaliation without risk of surrendering their lead, as they were up 6-0 at the time.

The Red Sox had some frustration to vent after losing the first two games of the series and veteran second baseman Dustin Pedroia to a knee injury in Friday's opener.

Boston manager John Farrell immediately bolted from the dugout to complain.

"If the rule is in place to protect the middle infielder, then it didn't work tonight", he said.

Perhaps all involved would do well just to listen to Pedroia when he talks.

"I didn't have anything to do with that, " he said. "Intentionally or not you don't want to get hit in the head", Machado said. I love playing against him. "If I wanted to do something, I would have hit you the first time". If I slid into third base and got Manny's knee, I know I'm going to get drilled. "You can just see it".

The Red Sox and Orioles play again May 1 at Fenway Park. It marked the closest the Orioles came to scoring off the left-hander, who allowed just one hit and five walks over six frames. The 2011 first-round draft pick lowered his ERA to 1.37 and extended his run of consecutive scoreless innings to 13. "I got some double play balls that my defense helped me out on and got me out of some jams".

Bad blood continues to boil between the Red Sox and Orioles. The left-hander beat Baltimore on April 11, allowing just one run in six innings. With Eduardo Rodriguez set to oppose Kevin Gausman in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9 runs.

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.

With one out in the eighth, centerfielder Adam Jones singled for the Orioles' second hit. Last season, he was handed a multi-game suspension after charging the mound against late Royals starting pitcher Yorando Ventura after being beaned by a pitch last June. Price, who was shut down in February with a sore left elbow, likely will throw another side session either Monday or Tuesday. "They look at it through [Red Sox glasses]".

"He's trying to take a four-seamer in above his hands and the pitch got away from him", Farrell said. OF Seth Smith (strained right hamstring) showed improvement Friday, so the team delayed a decision of whether to put him on the DL.

On the season, the 24-year-old left now ranks second among Sox starters with a 3.12 ERA.

Mychal Givens pitched two ideal innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save.
