Machado fined for kicking Brewers’ Aguilar

Machado fined for kicking Brewers’ Aguilar

Catcher Austin Barnes will once again start in place of the struggling Yasmani Grandal in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced immediately after Monday's 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Domingo Santana contributed an RBI pinch-hit double. Junior Guerra took the loss in relief as he surrendered one earned run on two hits with four strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 innings.

After singling to left field in the 13th inning, Machado greeted Aguilar with a brief hug at first base, and the two had a conversation between pitches. "Once I saw they were attacking me, it was just kind of grind mode and do what you can to put the ball in play and try to end this game". He made a diving catch on his belly of a ball hit by Lorenzo Cain leading off the 10th, spreading his arms out and sliding like a snow angel in right field.

In Game 1, the Brewers bullpen powered the team to a 6-5 win over the Dodgers.

While with the Baltimore Orioles, Machado got brushed back with a pitch from Oakland A's hurler Fernando Abad in the eighth inning of game.

Machado's play appeared to be intentional, and the Brewers' Christian Yelich, the NL's likely Most Valuable Player, denounced him after the game.

Clayton Kershaw will be the Dodgers starting pitcher, seeking to rebound from his shortest postseason start, facing fellow left-hander Wade Miley.

"I don't think we're too concerned about any other team's comments about our players", Roberts said. It's the second pedestrian ERA for Gonzalez in the past three seasons, though his 2017 season was terrific in that regard (2.96), and his 2016 ERA (4.57) was heavily skewed by an uncharacteristic dip in strand rate. "It's a dirty play by a dirty player".

Gonzalez rolled his ankle on a comebacker off the bat of Yasiel Puig. Aguilar said he and Machado talked it over and it's over. "He's a great guy". Machado said they go back to their days in the minors. While Machado has been criticized for not running out grounders and making hustle plays over the years, he also showed he's got plenty of pep when properly motivated: He sprinted from second to home on Cody Bellinger's two-out single in the 13th, sticking out his left hand to touch home plate as he beat Yelich's throw to the plate and slid past Erik Kratz's tag.
