He Called him the 'D' Word

Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado was called out for being a "dirty player" and not "playing all that hard" by the Milwaukee Brewers after clipping the back leg of Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running out a groundout in the 10th inning of Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday night.

"Everyone has their own opinions. He's a player who has a history of those types of incidents. One time is an accident. Repeated over and over and over again. You're just a dirty player." Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich told reporters. "It's a dirty play by a dirty player.

"I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can't respect someone who plays the game like that. It was a tough-fought baseball game, but it has no place in our game."

After answering questions, the outfielder walked away from his locker and blurted out "F--k that mother----er," according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.

Brewers infielder Travis Shaw agreed with Yelich's assessment of the play.

"The play at first today was a pretty dirty play," Shaw said. "It's not a mistake. You don't kick somebody like that on accident. He can say it wasn't on purpose, but it's a dirty play."

Machado defended his actions postgame.

"You saw the replay. His foot was on the bag," he told reporters following his team's 2-1 win. "Trying to get over him. Hit his foot.

Definitely a scummy play. No room in baseball for dirty players.
