Machado receives ban of five games

BALTIMORE — Orioles 3B Manny Machado on Tuesday was suspended five games for throwing his bat. He will appeal, but it is uncertain when it will be heard.

Friday, Machado yelled at A's 3B Josh Donaldson for a hard tag and benches cleared. LHP Wei-Yin Chen later hit Donaldson with a pitch. Sunday, A's LHP Fernando Abad sent two pitches high and tight to Machado. Machado threw the bat, and the benches cleared again.

Abad was fined an undisclosed amount but not suspended.
