Hey, Manny—what did Boston ever do to you? Orioles 3B Manny Machado continued his assault on Red Sox second-basemen, spraining Eduardo Nunez's wrist in a forgettable 16-3 rout. Incredibly Ugly Rick Porcello was on the hill for Boston—giving up 11 runs (4 earned) in 4.2 innings. This one had nothing going for it—with The Carmine Hose managing just six hits against O's pitching. Luckily, Aroldis Chapman was pitching again in the Bronx, so Boston's 4.5 game lead remained intact. Again, no biscuit, Red Sox!
