Manny Machado ‘Wasn’t Expecting’ Red Sox To Retaliate For ‘Good Slide’

The Boston Red Sox weren’t happy with Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado’s late slide during Friday’s game, and they made that known during Sunday’s 6-2 victory at Camden Yards.

Machado’s late slide into second base injured Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, and reliever Matt Barnes might have tried to send a message during the eighth inning of Sunday’s game.

Barnes threw a pitch that sailed at the Orioles third baseman’s head, and the Red Sox pitcher was ejected from the game.

To hear Machado’s comments after the game, check out the video above from “Red Sox Final,” presented by Plainridge Park Casino.
