Watch: Manny Machado commits dirty play at first base

Manny Machado Jesus Aguilar

Manny Machado’s dirty play at first base during the bottom of the 10th inning of Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday night led benches to clear between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers.

Machado grounded out against Junior Guerra for the second out of the inning. As he was running to first, he headed towards the inside of the baseline and then dragged his left leg to clip Jesus Aguilar by the bag.

Machado’s actions led to a strong response from Aguilar and the other players on the field:

The Brewers already had strong feelings towards Machado after his slide to break up a double play the night before drew some attention. But make no mistake about it: this was a dirty play by Machado, and Milwaukee had every right to be upset. That’s a garbage, bush league play.

Machado said earlier that he doesn’t like to hustle. Now we can see that he prefers to play dirty instead.
