No disciplinary action for Chris Sale after throwing behind Manny Machado

The All-Star said he felt "it was just the right time" to speak out after experiencing previous racial heckling at Fenway over 12 seasons, though he said it was more a sign of larger racial issues than an indictment of Boston or its fans. A few years ago, he even moved from shortstop to third base, just like his idol once did.

Although he went off on an expletive-filled rant earlier in the week about how he had lost respect for the Red Sox, he said he did not go slowly to rub it in.

The four-game series ended Thursday night filled to the brim with beanballs, racial slurs, ejections, and fines which meant the record was nearly something to be forgotten about.

A-Rod must have been proud.

"Those series where I play Baltimore in Baltimore, maybe have one or two short series, and then I play Baltimore in Boston, you don't have that same cooling-off period", Manfred said.

Mauer, who had an RBI-single in the seventh, picked up Kintzler with his second home run of the season, this one coming off Matt Barnes (3-1).

"They can't live up to the levels of superiority they're told they're supposed to naturally have, so they turn to symbolic things or people to build a sense of identity and to take out a sense of frustration", Hughey said. "So we'll have to see what tomorrow brings with him".

Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes was suspended four games for throwing a 90 miles per hour pitch behind Machado's head.

Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said he was called the N-word at Fenway Park on Monday night.

The latest installment in the ongoing Orioles-Red Sox feud is this: Boston left-hander Chris Sale is reportedly not in line for a suspension after throwing behind Manny Machado on Tuesday. "It was also much appreciated by the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball getting ahead of it". Go ahead and watch it again online.

After three days in which the Baltimore Orioles' focus understandably may have been anywhere but on the actual baseball game they were playing in, manager Buck Showalter welcomed Thursday night's 8-3 win over the Boston Red Sox.

The blast was Machado's third homer of the series, and his home run trot drew boos from the crowd. It also had an exit velocity of 119.4 miles per hour, which is downright A-Rodian.

"I'm glad the Sox are encouraging fans to come forward", Hennick said. The Red Sox passed on Robinson in 1945 and also passed on a chance to sign future Hall of Famer Willie Mays.

Machado has a team-leading seven homers this season, including three in the Orioles' heated four-game series with Boston. I think so, but with the errors piling up and the team heretofore locked in a pointless feud with the Orioles, doubts have piled up like hot trousers on a Simpsons seashore. "We feel that our staff is prepared to take whatever steps are needed to properly address those fans who get out of hand with their comments". "This whole division, everyone's our rival".

Before Friday's game - the Orioles' first at home after returning from Boston - a new pregame message was read and displayed on the video board that "threatening language or any type of hate speech will not be tolerated and will result in ejection from the ballpark".
