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.

Welch dies: Bob Welch, the last pitcher to win 25 games in a year, died of a heart attack in Seal Beach, Calif. He was 57. Mr. Welch played on five teams that reached the World Series, including the A's from 1988-90. He won the 1990 Cy Young after going 27-6. As a rookie, he struck out Reggie Jackson to end Game 2 of the 1978 World Series, which the Dodgers won.

Astros: RF George Springer missed his second game because of a sore right knee and remains day to day.

Pirates: LHP Francisco Liriano left his start in the fourth with pain in his side.

Rockies: A doctor removed a small tumor from the left index finger of LF Carlos Gonzalez during exploratory surgery. He's expected to be out another 2-3 weeks.

Reds: 1B Joey Votto, out since May 16 with a strained left knee, was activated.

Twins: RHP Mike Pelfrey will miss 2-4 months after surgery on his right elbow.

Tigers-White Sox, ppd: The game in Chicago was called because of rain. No makeup date was announced.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
