I wonder if anyone noticed something during the Red Sox/Orioles series ender Sunday.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes has been suspended four games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing a fastball past the head of Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado.

No Oriole poking his nose out of his dugout hole did anything other than mill around the infield.

Barnes threw at Machado in apparent retaliation for Machado spiking Dustin Pedroia in the calf on Friday night. A slide immediately after which Machado sprang up and, before anything else, reached to aid Pedroia.

Twins general manager Thad Levine said the organization will support Sano's decision to appeal "by providing video and some commentary around the situation that Major League Baseball may otherwise not have the benefit of". Some felt the slide was dirty, but the Red Sox did not retaliate - until two days later.

Despite the gloomy data, oil investors are holding out hope for short-term good news about a decline in USA stocks. Brent for June settlement was 16 cents higher at $56.39 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange.

Barnes was ejected Sunday after sailing a pitch past Machado's helmet at Baltimore. Pedroia has not played since getting spiked and is listed as day-to-day.

"I think we've all been around Pedey long enough to know that there's going to be games where he doesn't feel physically 100 per cent, but he's played a high number of them", Farrell said.

Pedroia made the uncharacteristic move of calling out his own teammate by saying, "That's not how you do that, man".

"I told [Matt Klentak] that I was sorry, and the guys in here", Buchholz said. Throwing at the head is an entirely different issue though. In his absence, the Red Sox likely will use Heath Hembree as their primary eighth-inning reliever. In the 6th inning, starter Eduardo Rodriguez threw about three pitches down and inside at Machado's knees.
