The MLB fined Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado with an undisclosed amount for the way he reached Milwaukee Brewers "Jesus Aguilar" in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series last night. confirmed sources for ESPN.
The Athletic was the first to report the punishment to Machado.
The incident took place in the tenth inning of the game on Tuesday-evening, when Machado hit Aguilar & # 39; s leg while reaching first base.
Both banks have emptied after the incident. Aguilar's right foot was on first base and it seemed that Machado had intentionally kicked him with his left foot out of frustration when he retired.
"It was a dirty game by a dirty player," said the star player of the brewers, Christian Yelich, after the game.
"I tried to pass (from Aguilar's foot) and hit on his foot," Machado said. "If that is" dirty play ", then it is & # 39; dirty play & # 39; I do not know, name it whatever you want. & # 39;
