Major League Baseball hits Manny Machado with fine for 'dirty' running play

Rosenthal Walker Buehler’s history with a Brewers coach a Dodgers scout’s unusual wedding night more notes

Major League Baseball fined Machado an undisclosed amount Wednesday, a day after the baserunning incident caused the benches to clear at Dodger Stadium and prompted Brewers MVP candidate Christian Yelich to call Machado a "dirty player".

Hall of Famer Jim Palmer made some waves by blasting him in a tweet during Game 2 - and who can argue with the notion that every player should run hard on every ground ball - but lots of players jog to first base when they feel a routine play is going to be made well ahead of them.

Christian Yelich didn't hold back words in his response to the incident. "I think good players will get good offence going, and we're going to need it, and I expect it to happen". It's a dirty play by a dirty player, and that's what it is.

"The play at first today is a pretty dirty play", Shaw said. Instead, Guerra pitched to Bellinger, who sent a game-winning single to right field as the Dodgers celebrated a 2-1. "That's just not my personality, that's not my cup of tea, that's not who I am", Machado told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal in an interview that's scheduled to air on FS1 Tuesday. Milwaukee promptly won its final seven regular-season games and an NL Central tiebreaker against the Chicago Cubs to earn its first division title since 2011, and the Brewers did more than enough at the plate in a sweep of Colorado in the Division Series.

On Wednesday, the Dodgers will try to move within one victory of their second consecutive World Series berth. We go way back since the minor leagues. You can say it wasn't on goal, this and that, but it's a dirty play.

She owes the voters of the commonwealth an explanation as to why the DNA test occured now. That wasn't enough for Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.

"It's a beauty pageant", Alex Rodriguez said on Fox Sports' postgame show.

Former Oriole Manny Machado has always played baseball to the beat of his own drum, so it's not like anybody should be surprised that he has suddenly become the bad boy of the baseball postseason. Did you see that?

The players' union declined comment on Machado's fine.

Machado's base-running was an issue in Game 3, when a replay review indicated he violated the Utley rule in sliding through second base in an attempt to break up a double play. "That's just not my personality".

The Dodgers acquired Machado from Baltimore this season for their playoff push, and to replace injured shortstop Corey Seager.
