Manny Machado Fined Undisclosed Amount for Jesus Aguilar Incident

Major League Baseball has fined Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado an undisclosed amount because of the way he ran into Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar on Tuesday night, according to reports.

The incident prompted both benches to clear in the 10th inning of Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, an eventual 2-1 win by the Dodgers in the bottom of the 13th.

"It's a dirty play by a dirty player", said outfielder Christian Yelich.

Unfortunately, his questionable play at first base last night is overshadowing his production in the most-important series of his career.

When Machado was asked again about the play, he said, "I was trying to get over him and hit his foot".

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 actions come on the heels of two controversial slides into second base during during Monday's Game 3, when he appeared to grab at Brewers infielders in attempts to break up double plays.

Aguilar, who wasn't hurt on the play, said he and Machado "turned the page" afterward. "I don't know. Call it what you want". "I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can't respect someone who plays the game like that". There were two outs in the tied 13th inning, with Manny Machado waiting near first base and the pitcher's spot nearing.

In a game that loves its heroes and despises its villains, Machado is fast becoming baseball's No. 1 villain.

"I'm not the type of player that's going to be 'Johnny Hustle, ' and run down the line and slide to first base and. you know, whatever can happen".

Speaking hours before Wednesday's Game 5, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said his club is unconcerned about the Brewers' comments and that Machado is simply "preparing to help us win today". "That's not who I am".
