The Twins, while not a Boston rival, present a different challenge.

Kansas City is in a bad spot after opening the year with just nine wins in its first 26 games. But does that outburst define the city of Boston in general and Red Sox fans in particular? The Sox are now 15-13 after splitting their last 4-game series with the Orioles, who are now 1st place in the AL East.

Sabathia said he's "never been called the N-word" anywhere other than Boston, while also highlighting the larger issue of race in baseball: African Americans now make up less than seven per cent of players.

Machado hit a 466-drive over the Green Monster and onto Lansdowne Street for his third homer of the series.

Minnesota lost to Oakland yesterday in Minneapolis 8-5 to stop a four-game winning streak.

"I mean, if you're going to f--ing hit me, hit me".

"We split two at their park [against a] really good baseball team", manager Buck Showalter said. "That's what's probably given us the biggest chance to win some games".

The Twins got the scoring started in their half of the first, as Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez got Brian Dozier to strikeout for the first out of the inning, but then hit Mauer.

Chris Sale has a 1.38 ERA and 1.44 FIP in 45.2 innings pitched.

According to oddsmakers at Bodava.lv, Red Sox are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -145 to win.

Machado was booed before every at-bat at Fenway, but that was nothing compared to the greeting he got Tuesday night from Red Sox ace Chris Sale, who whipped a 98 miles per hour first-pitch fastball behind his knees in the first inning.

Meanwhile, Jason Hammel hasn't lasted more than 3.0 innings in either of his last two starts.

Baltimore's Tyler Wilson (2-1) gave up three runs and six hits with one strikeout in his six-inning spot start.

Hughes is used to facing Boston. "My office has been in contact with the Red Sox, and the club has made it clear that they will not tolerate this inexcusable behavior".

Jonathan Schoop had three hits for the Orioles.

Sano scored a few minutes later when Robbie Grossman singled to left field to make it a 2-0 Twins lead. Minnesota 3B Miguel Sano had a hearing for his appeal of a one-game suspension for shoving Detroit C James McCann. Hunter Harvey, the Orioles' No. 1 draft pick in 2013 who underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2016, is scheduled to throw 25 pitches during a bullpen session in Sarasota, Fla., May 5. Buxton passed a concussion test on Thursday after leaving the game early when he collided with the outfield wall.

"I had N-word issues there, and we got the guy kicked out", Hunter said.
