Baltimore, Oakland Nearly Brawl After Manny Machado Chucks Bat

Things got a little heated between the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland A’s on Sunday after Manny Machado chucked his bat down the third baseline. Machado took an inside pitch from Fernando Abad, which appeared to trigger the reaction. Both teams nearly brawled at home plate after the dugouts and bullpens cleared. Machado and Abad were ejected from the game for their roles in the event.

Oakland notched the victory over Baltimore on Sunday, 11-1. The A’s also took two out of three games in the weekend series.
