MACHADO AT CENTER OF ORIOLES-ATHLETICS BRAWL

0

BALTIMORE: Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was at the center of a bench-clearing brawl on Sunday (Monday in Manila), but insisted he didn’t mean to throw a bat in a game against Oakland. Machado had swung and missed at a pitch from Athletics hurler Fernando Abad, and said the bat just slipped out of his hands and hurtled down the third base line. Once order was restored and play resumed, Chris Davis’s bases-loaded walk forced in Caleb Joseph for Baltimore’s first and only run in their 11-1 defeat.
