Pedro Martinez: "If I was pitching, I was going to drill Machado, as much as I love him. The only thing I would've done differently is probably bring the ball a little bit lower." Pedro says Machado "did not intend to hurt Pedroia. And I know that because I know Machado." Also says Barnes did not mean to throw the ball at Machado's head.

Not surprising in 6-0 game that Matt Barnes would take opportunity to throw at Manny Machado. Out of bounds, though, to throw up around head.
