Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has had enough.

Machado went on a expletive-filled rant to reporters Tuesday after Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale threw behind him.

This was the second time recently a Red Sox pitcher had thrown directly towards Machado instead of the plate. On April 23, Boston pitcher Matt Barnes was ejected for throwing a pitch towards Machado’s head.

Machado was furious after the latest incident. 

The Red Sox have targeted Machado because he slid into second base and hurt Dustin Pedroia on April 21. Machado maintained it was an accident and a routine baseball play.

In another interview with MASN, Machado said he lost all respect for the Red Sox

 

The Orioles beat the Red Sox, 5-2.
