Terrific split screen shot on NESN of Machado-Pedroia conversation. Pedroia said, "It's not me." Machado pointed to head.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Orioles 4, Red Sox 2: Trey Mancini and Jonathan Schoop hit back-to-back home runs against knuckleballer Steven Wright to lead Baltimore to its fourth consecutive win. The Orioles have hit 23 homers this season compared to the Red Sox's eight. Boston didn't seek retaliation for Manny Machado's high slide into Dustin Pedroia one night earlier.
