MILWAUKEE (AP) Manny Machado gestured with hands, appearing to egg on the booing crowd as he retreated down the dugout steps following a first-inning strikeout.
The jeers kept coming for the Los Angeles Dodgers star. So did the outs.
Machado went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in a 7-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night that pushed the NL Championship Series to a Game 7. Asked if he was shaken by the persistent boos, Machado said he was just focused on the game and responded with cliches.
