Orioles OF Adam Jones claims racist taunts in Boston


The Orioles (16-8) got another strong start from Dylan Bundy, a home run and two RBIs from Machado and some timely hitting to cash in on three Red Sox errors in the eighth inning en route to a 5-2 win over Boston in the opener of a four-game series.

Boston's Monday starter, Rick Porcello (1-3, 4.75 ERA), looks to reverse his early-season struggles after a rare four-walk game his last time out against the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

Kennedy and manager John Farrell separately met with Red Sox players on Tuesday and said the players said they'd experienced similar incidents in both Fenway and around the league. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado injured Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia during a slide, and two games later Boston reliever Matt Barnes threw a pitch behind Machado's head, leading to a four game suspension and fine.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said three coalition service members had received "non-life threatening wounds" in the attack. The blast rocked the area near the United States embassy in Afghanistan , a security official reported.

NY got two three runs in the bottom of the sixth to start a comeback, with two of those coming on Aaron Judge's second homer of the game.

Orioles ace Dylan Bundy (3-1, 1.65 ERA) will take the mound in the series opener versus 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello (1-3, 4.75 ERA). "I just have to go out and perform whether they boo me or not". Barnes was suspended four games and fined.

"From what I understand is that they weren't made aware of it until an hour after the game when the player made the allegation", Evans said. I can't tell you what they're thinking or what they're trying to do there. He allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and struck out nine.

Wizards squeak out win to go up 3-2 on Hawks
There is a glut of information to go over in this series, and plenty of statistics that tell the story of its five games so far. Here we are decades later, and Atlanta and Washington are again locked in a National Basketball Association playoff series.

Kevin Gausman (1-2, 7.50 ERA) will take the ball against Drew Pomeranz (2-1, 4.15 ERA) in Wednesday's contest. Last year, when he went 22-4, he was backed by huge offense - 6.6 runs per nine innings, highest in the majors.

The right-hander was rolling on Monday until the fifth inning when he allowed the first run of the game, on a two-out double from No. 9 batter Caleb Joseph, who was added to the starting lineup just two hours before first pitch.

"I think much has been said about it but we've moved on from it", Farrell said. C Welington Castillo had a neck spasm that's been bothering him a few days, so Joseph started in his spot.

Bob Batt of Omaha, who chairs the liquor commission, said he was disappointed but respected the judge's ruling. Brewer says he doesn't want to be too judgmental about the ruling. "As a Nebraskan I am troubled.

Then came the bottom of the ninth, and a spot that the Orioles really, really wish they had closer Zach Britton (rehabbing from a shoulder injury). RHP Mike Wright was recalled by the Orioles, and RHP Logan Verrett was optioned. Alec Asher gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.16 ERA and six strikeouts this season. When he stepped up for his first at-bat during Tuesday night's game, he was also given an extended applause from the Fenway crowd, with Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale stepping off the mound to allow the applause to continue.
