Jones applauded, Machado buzzed as Red Sox top Orioles 5-2

Jones applauded, Machado buzzed as Red Sox top Orioles 5-2

The blast sparked an 8-3 win in Boston.

Manny Machado hit a three-run homer and Seth Smith had four of Baltimore's season-high-tying 17 hits and two RBI as the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 8-3 on Thursday night at Fenway Park.

May 1 at Fenway Park, racism yet again reared its ugly head when a number of fans hurled bigoted epithets at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones. Sale's pitch, a 98 m.p.h. fastball aimed behind Machado's knees, was the third such incident to spawn from Pedroia's injury.

Indian police said a 35-year-old woman was killed and her husband was injured when a Pakistani shell hit their home. An evacuation plan has been activated for shifting over 1,500 people from various border hamlets to safer places.

Tyler Wilson worked six innings for the victory, allowing three earned runs on six hits with one walk and one strikeout.

The two swiped bags gave the Orioles nine as a team through 27 games.

But after Tuesday's game, Machado went on an all-time rant, saying he had lost respect for the Red Sox. Red Sox president of baseball ops Dave Dombrowski called the session "outstanding".

ISIS leader in Afghanistan killed in April, Pentagon says
Special Forces and Afghan security forces in the eastern province of Nangarhar on April 27, the Pentagon confirmed on Sunday. He died 10 days ago in an joint special forces operation in eastern Nangarhar province, the United States military said.

On Monday, Baltimore's Dylan Bundy hit Boston right fielder Mookie Betts near the hip with a pitch. Defensive replacement Joey Rickard got turned around but reached out to grab it with the tip of his glove as he fell to the warning track just a few feet in front of the bullpen wall. That forced manager Buck Showalter to use Jimenez in relief and bring Wilson up from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday. It also helped that the Orioles provided almost 20 hits in support. "I felt it was different than the normal, 'I hit your guy, you hit my guy.' As a matter of fact, it had persisted so long, it was hard to trace back who had hit who, when and whose turn it was". "That kind of stemmed that".

Baltimore's Kevin Gausman hit Xander Bogaerts with 76.6 miles per hour curve ball and was immediately ejected from the game by plate umpire Sam Holbrook. INF Marco Hernandez (left shoulder subluxation) was placed on the 10-day disabled list.

The Red Sox return to action on Friday night when they visit the Minnesota Twins for a three game series.
