Machado let his bat fly in the direction of third base after swinging at a pitch from Oakland's Fernando Abad in the eighth inning. The bat-toss came during a plate appearance in which Abad threw a tight pitch to Machado.
Pinch-runner Rajai Davis's decision to steal third base just as Oakland catcher Derek Norris was throwing the ball back to the pitcher caught most everyone by surprise - including several of his Detroit teammates.
Abad went 0-3 with a 3.35 ERA in 39 appearances for the Nationals last season. He spent 2010-12 with the Houston Astros and has a career record of 1-14 with a 4.56 ERA.
The Nationals have made yet another trade with the Athletics, this time sending lefty Fernando Abad to the A's for outfield prospect John Wooten.
The Nationals added prospects Sammy Solis, Michael Taylor and Aaron Barrett to their 40-man roster, designating lefties Fernando Abad and Tyler Robertson for assignment.
Fernando Abad, called on to relieve him with one out, made what teammates agreed were good pitches.
