BOSTON (AP) - Manny Machado hit a long three-run shot for his third homer of the series and the Baltimore Orioles capped four tense days at Fenway Park with an 8-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.

Sale threw behind Machado's legs in the first inning of Tuesday's game at Fenway Park, which added more fuel to a feud that has dominated baseball headlines over the last two weeks.

Machado spent the bulk of this four-game series dodging pitches, lashing out at the Red Sox organization with his postgame comments and pretty much fuming as the tension between the two AL East rivals escalated. Following Manny Machado's slide into Dustin Pedroia, Matt Barnes retaliated and threw at Machado's head a day later.

Barnes' 90-mph pitch was more risky, targeted too close to Machado's head.

Baltimore's Kevin Gausman hit Xander Bogaerts with 76.6 miles per hour curve ball and was immediately ejected from the game by plate umpire Sam Holbrook.

There was no indication of racial slurs like the ones directed at outfielder Adam Jones on Monday night.

With Ubaldo Jimenez, Thursday's scheduled starter, pressed into a relief role on Wednesday, Baltimore called up Tyler Wilson from the minors. Machado also took almost 30 seconds to round the bases after a home run during Monday's game.

The blast was Machado's third homer of the series, and his home run trot drew boos from the crowd. "I've got a f-ing bat too". I'm not a rookie. I would say it is up to them as to how they react to the outburst this time, and what they do to work against there being a similar incident next time.

"It's Baltimore-Boston", Harbaugh said. "I bleed for this team".

The four-game series ended Thursday night filled to the brim with beanballs, racial slurs, ejections, and fines which meant the record was nearly something to be forgotten about. "I'm hopeful that we're going to have a continuing dialogue with [union head] Tony Clark and the MLBPA about whether our rules in this area are really sufficient".
