Gausman was ejected after what appeared to be a curveball hit Xander Bogaerts. Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told the Herald that the fan later was notified that he had been banned from the stadium for life. Thankfully, the teams will now put their feud on ice before meeting again June 1-4 at Camden Yards.

Manfred says the goal is to make sure players feel comfortable in every ballpark. "We've got Toronto and the Yankees in the mix".

Manny Machado hit a three-run homer and Seth Smith had four of Baltimore's season-high-tying 17 hits and two RBI as the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 8-3 on Thursday night at Fenway Park.

Farrell also said the team hopes to get utility infielder Brock Holt (vertigo) out on another rehab soon.

"It's a little different than a traditional stolen base, so it's really just a circumstantial thing where they said go if they throw at second, and I went", said Smith, who had not stolen a base since May 20, 2014.

On Monday, Baltimore's Dylan Bundy hit Boston right fielder Mookie Betts near the hip with a pitch. "As a matter of fact, it had persisted so long it was hard to trace back who had hit who when, whose turn it was". Orioles LHP Wade Miley (1-1, 2.32 ERA) starts against the Chicago White Sox and Red Sox LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (1-1, 2.70 ERA) faces the Minnesota Twins on Friday. But Manfred believed the Red Sox-Orioles situation had devolved to where it was an issue of player safety.

-Manfred said he is hopeful to play a regular season game in Mexico in the near future and the idea of eventually having a team in Mexico "is very appealing to me".

At least Chris Sale didn't come close to Machado's head.

-Manfred called the need for new ballparks in Oakland and Tampa Bay "acute". "We just didn't want to see it go any further".
