Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes continues feud, throws at Manny Machado's head

Dylan Bundy took a five-hitter into the eighth inning, Manny Machado homered and the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Friday night.

The text apology must have resonated with Pedroia because he was seen mouthing "It's not me" toward Machado when Boston manager John Farrell was arguing Barnes' ejection.

"To me, what I saw was, when (Machado) ducked out of the way, the ball hits the bat and is in fair territory", Farrell said.

Pedroia had been yelling toward Machado on the field immediately after Barnes' risky pitch, which earned the reliever an ejection. Watching are Red Sox shortstop Marco Hernandez, left, and umpire Andy Fletcher.

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

Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes was ejected in the eighth inning of Sunday's 6-2 win over the Orioles after he threw behind the head of Manny Machado.

Red Sox: After an off day Monday, Boston opens a season-high, 10-game homestand Tuesday night in a matchup with the Yankees. All the long balls were off Kevin Gausman (1-2), who found himself in a 4-0 hole after throwing only seven pitches. Pomeranz was able to get out of the inning without further damage by getting slugger Manny Machado to line out to center and Mark Trumbo to pop out to first base. This was a flawless opportunity to get going, and besides Bradley and to a lesser extent Leon, they couldn't.

"As a player that doesn't have the most service time in this room, when a guy like Adam Jones tells me to do something or not to do something, I'm going to do (what he says)". "I'm [upset] we lost the game", Pedroia said.

"I just got caught in a weird position".

Another day, another poor performance for the Red Sox offense. The left-hander gave up two runs on six hits in six innings and needed to escape jams in each of his last three innings.

"You never want to get hit in the head". The Orioles have done it twice - both times by Mancini and Jonathan Schoop, and both times against the Red Sox.

Lynn (2-1) gave up a run and three hits in six innings. Either way, intentional or not, Pedroia had to leave the game, which led to Pablo Sandoval playing second base for an inning. The lefty led off the inning by walking Gentry and was able to erase the baserunner on a 6-4-3 double play. Moreland came up empty 0-for-3 on Saturday, while Jackie Bradley slapped a two-run homer.

While Saturday's game went by without incident, Sunday's series finale was a different story.

"Clearly there is a difference in opinion in how that rule was interpreted and the slide", Farrell said.

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (knee) remained out of the starting lineup Sunday.

Note, too, that Pedroia said he'd expect to get drilled if he spiked Machado - while Machado said he expected nothing. I thought Pageau may have simply nudged the puck with his glove back to Anderson which would have been fine, but you couldn't tell.
