Everything was going along smoothly in Tuesday night’s matchup between the Baltimore Orioles and the Kansas City Royals, until it wasn’t.
It all started in the bottom of the fifth inning when Royals flame-thrower Yordano Ventura unleashed a 99-mph fastball that drilled Orioles shortstop Manny Machado in the ribs.
As you will see, Machado did not take to kindly to the plunking and decided to take matters into his own hands as he proceeded to charge the mound. When he got there, he threw a right hand that connected with Ventura’s face and then finished him off with what could only be described as a textbook DDT, Jake “The Snake” Roberts style.
