Machado homers in Orioles' win over Red Sox

Machado homers in Orioles' win over Red Sox

The Orioles' 5-2 victory marked the latest testy game between the AL East rivals this season, including a dustup in Baltimore a week ago.

Boston's Monday starter, Rick Porcello (1-3, 4.75 ERA), looks to reverse his early-season struggles after a rare four-walk game his last time out against the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

"I'd like to say that's the best defensive game I've seen Manny have, but he's had a few of those", manager Buck Showalter said after his team beat reigning Cy Young victor Rick Porcello.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was always going to be the villain after his reckless slide into Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia last month sparked tension between the clubs.

NY got two three runs in the bottom of the sixth to start a comeback, with two of those coming on Aaron Judge's second homer of the game.

"I'm passed it. It's over with and I'm ready to go", Barnes said to the assembled media that staked out his locker prior to the game.

Bundy (4-1) turned in his sixth straight quality start and shut the Red Sox out through seven innings to beat them for the second time in three starts already this season. "Where I come from if you say things like that, you put on the gloves and you go after it". Red Sox manager John Farrell, not in a great mood after his team made four errors for the second time in three games, said, "I can't answer that".

He was seen briefing the USA commanders with the help of an interpreter during the tour. "We're troubled by that", Dorrian said. Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said both the USA and Russian Federation had ample warning.

Baker said he didn't know the exact details of the incident, but added: "if you throw something at a player on the field and you hit them, that's a crime and you can charge somebody for that".

Kevin Gausman (1-2, 7.50 ERA) will take the ball against Drew Pomeranz (2-1, 4.15 ERA) in Wednesday's contest. Chris Sale gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 1.19 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. Boston has just scored four total runs when he's been on the mound in five starts. Last year, when he went 22-4, he was backed by huge offense - 6.6 runs per nine innings, highest in the majors.

He sat Sunday, but scored Jonathan Schoop from first base with a stinger to left-center field to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning Monday. C Welington Castillo had a neck spasm that's been bothering him a few days, so Joseph started in his spot.

"I feel like we've got to pick a spot here", Farrell said. Joseph, a.213 lifetime hitter coming in, collected his 12th hit in 42 Fenway Park at-bats - his seventh Fenway RBI, more than he has in any road ballpark.

In the teams' last meeting at Camden Yards, reliever Matt Barnes sent a pitch that whizzed behind Machado's head and hit the slugger's bat.

Orioles: RHP Alec Asher (1-0, 2.16 ERA) is set to make his second start of the season Tuesday.
