Red Sox Pitcher Throws At Manny Machado's Head

Manny Machado avoids pitch thrown at him by the Red Sox.

The Baltimore star got thrown at today.

Baltimore Orioles star third baseman Manny Machado was thrown at today by Boston in apparent retaliation for a slide of his some deemed "dirty" earlier in the series.

On Friday night, Machado took out Red Sox star second baseman Dustin Pedroia with a cleats-up slide that came pretty late.

The slide came on a double-play ball.

Here it was:

Machado texted Pedroia afterwards, saying he was sorry and that he wasn't trying to injure him.

That leads us to today, when Machado got thrown at by Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes.

The throw:

Barnes was ejected. Following the game, Pedroia expressed frustration with what had happened, saying the Red Sox should have handled it better.

Pedrioa hasn't played since Friday night.

The Red Sox won today, 6-2.
