Red Sox officially ban fan for using racial slur

Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy confirmed the decision while speaking with the media in the press box Wednesday night.

The interaction came on the same night Red Sox fans had been urged to show they welcome all races, after Monday's ugly incident that targeted Adam Jones. That fan was banned for life from the stadium, according to NBC Boston. "It was terrible, and as I understand it, [he] actually asked the other person to repeat what they just said, confirm that they just said it".

The 77 miles per hour curveball hit Bogaerts in the hip, prompting plate umpire Sam Holbrook to toss the pitcher immediately.

Gausman's explanation seems to be very genuine, considering that in the prior inning and the start of the second he had struggled with his control and curveballs, even with good command can be tricky just the same.

"I hate to say it, but I agree with Stoney", Ausmus said with a laugh.

Two days later, Boston reliever Matt Barnes whizzed a fastball behind the head of Machado, hitting his bat. But at the end of the day, I can only tell them so much, and they have to live it themselves.

Royals 6, White Sox 1 • Nate Karns allowed one hit in six innings to lift host Kansas City.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was later tossed, too, soon after being upset by a called strike. This was also AJ's first career ejection.

"We're going to have to work really hard with our security operation", Kennedy told WEEI. ". So you don't sit there and bleed; you do something about it". So basically, saying both the Orioles & Red Sox need to cut the crap or suspensions and/or fines will be levied.

"I think it caught us all a little bit off guard", Farrell said. "So that's why I'm' here right now". "We as @RedSox and @MLB fans are better than this". Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland each added base hits in the winning effort for the Red Sox.

"Talked to him last night after the game". He left before the inning was over.

"Maybe Tee-ball", he said, widening his smile. It's uncertain whether he will land on the disabled list.

Boston made it 4-0 against Bleier in the fourth when Chris Young had an RBI double, Rutledge a run-scoring grounder and Pedroia a sacrifice fly.

Following the Cavaliers' win on Wednesday night in Cleveland, James was asked about the happenings on Monday at Fenway Park in which racial slurs were allegedly directed at Orioles player Adam Jones.

The incident occurred prior to the Red Sox hosting the Baltimore Orioles when a Kenyan woman sang the national anthem and the fan used the slur to describe her performance. "You get called names, n-word, all kinds of stuff when you go to Boston", Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia recently said. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter was on the call but wouldn't share specifics.
