Machado homers, O's end strained series vs Red Sox with win

Machado homers, O's end strained series vs Red Sox with win

"Took my son to his first baseball game tonight", Hennick wrote on Twitter, adding that he had "spent the day mentally defending my city" after Monday night's game in which Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was subjected to racial taunts and had a bag of peanuts thrown at him.

Hennick said he notified team security of the incident and the man was ejected from the game, noted Boston.com. After the game, Machado unleashed a profanity-laced rant in response to Sale's pitch, stating that he no longer has any respect for anyone in the Boston organization.

Hennick said he asked three times for clarification but the man remained defiant. He also has an 0.6 WAR that stands as the fourth highest among the league's relievers and puts him on pace to challenge his career-high 3.3 WAR set in 2012. He thanked Hennick for reporting the issue and said he was proud of how the park's staff had reacted. I've got 100 home runs to show", he said calmly, explaining away his outburst after being brushed back on Tuesday: "This is my team. Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told the Herald that the fan later was notified that he had been banned from the stadium for life.

Machado had a lot to say post-game on Tuesday of this series, after Red Sox pitcher Chris sale threw a 97 miles per hour fastball at his lower body. "That's what happened. Immediately, the fan made us aware of it, thankfully, so we were able to address it right away". "I'm here to send a message loud and clear that the behavior, the language, the treatment of others that you've heard about and read about is not acceptable", he said.

Jones did not comment after Wednesday's game. In the aftermath of Orioles center fielder Adam Jones reporting that he was the target of a racial slur on Monday night at Fenway Park, Manfred said Major League Baseball is surveying its teams about how they handle such incidents, in order to come up with "more industrywide guidelines in this area".

"It's unfortunate that people need to resort to those type of epithets to degrade another human being", Jones said.

So what does this say about the city and their fans in Fenway?

The pitch from Sale was low, around Machado's knees, certainly a factor in MLB's decision.

"There was a lot here over the 10, 11 days that we were here", Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "It's 2017 and we're still kind of dealing with that, especially with how integrated everything is". Your ignorance is not going to affect what I'm trying to do.

"When we see this sort of thing, we must fight back", Hennick wrote on Twitter.
