LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado’s lack of hustle is starting to stand out more than his offense this postseason.The star shortstop had a little too much self-confidence in the sixth inning Friday night when he thought he homered for the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 3 of the World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Instead http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey , Machado ended up admiring what turned out to be a 368-foot single as it bounced off the wall in left field.Had Machado run it out, it might have been a double. It also turned out to be his only hit as he went 1 for 7 in the Dodgers’ 3-2 win in 18 innings early Saturday that trimmed their Series deficit to 2-1.“I looked up at first and thought it wasn’t going and then I saw it take up and thought it was going to go out,” Machado said. “That was very, very, very, very, very poor baserunning by me.”It is not the first time this postseason that Machado’s effort level has become an issue. He was criticized for not hustling during a groundout in Game 2 of the NL Championship Series against Milwaukee.Machado said in an interview on FS1 during the NLCS that he’s well aware he’s not going to be known as a hustling type of player Babe Ruth Jersey , but that is how he has played throughout his career.He was much more critical of himself after Friday night’s game.“I probably wasn’t going to be on second base but that was very embarrassing,” he said.Things didn’t get much better for Machado in the eighth when he struck out on Matt Barnes’ high fastball on a full count with a runner on first. Two innings later he popped out to shortstop Xander Bogaerts after Max Muncy doubled with two outs. That dropped Machado to 0 for 9 in his career against Boston closer Craig Kimbrel.Machado also flied out in the 13th after Muncy walked leading off the inning.The 26-year-old Machado can become a free agent this offseason and is expected to command a large contract. He drew the ire of Milwaukee players and fans — not to mention a fine — for kicking Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar near the ankle as he jogged out a groundout during the NLCS.There was also a pair of hard slides into Orlando Arcia in Game 3 while the Milwaukee shortstop was attempting to turn double plays. The antics led Brewers star Christian Yelich to call Machado “a dirty player,” but the Dodgers slugger has seemed to embrace the role of villain this October.The baserunning gaffes are overshadowing what has been a productive month for Machado, acquired from Baltimore on July 19. He is batting .255 in the postseason but leads the Dodgers in home runs (three) and RBIs (11).Machado is 3 for 14 in the World Series but thinks the Dodgers have momentum after their dramatic win.“This is huge. We were grinding until the last run came across the board. We’re 2-1 in the Series, which we needed,” he said. “We’ll get some rest and get back at it.” TORONTO (AP) — Rhys Hoskins and Carlos Santana hit back-to-back home runs, Maikel Franco and Wilson Ramos each had two-run shots and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3 on Sunday http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-david-ortiz-jersey , avoiding a three-game sweep.Ramos had four hits. He singled in the first, doubled home a run in the second, singled in the sixth and homered off Tyler Clippard in the eighth, his 15th.Vince Velasquez (9-9) allowed two runs and three hits in five innings for the victory as Philadelphia won for the second time in eight games. The Phillies began the day three games behind Atlanta in the NL East, and two games out in the wild card race.Luis Garcia, Hector Neris, Tommy Hunter Bobby Doerr Jersey , and Seranthony Dominguez each pitched one inning of relief.Kendrys Morales set a Blue Jays record by homering for the seventh consecutive game, hitting a two-run shot off Velasquez in the third. Morales, who leads the Blue jays with 21 homers, is the seventh player in major league history with a home run streak of at least seven games. Ken Griffey Jr., Dale Long, and Don Mattingly share the all-time record with home runs in eight straight games.Hoskins reached base four times as the Phillies ended Toronto’s winning streak at five.Hoskins opened the scoring with a one-out drive off right-hander Marco Estrada in the first, his 26th. Three pitches later http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-jimmie-foxx-jersey , Santana doubled the lead with a blast to right, his 19th. It was the third time this season the Phillies have hit back-to-back home runs.Ramos hit an RBI double in the second and the Phillies chased Estrada in the third. Asdrubal Cabrera led off with a double, Franco celebrated his 26th birthday with his 22nd home run, and Odubel Herrera walked before Justin Shafer came on in relief.Estrada (7-10) allowed five runs and seven hits in two-plus innings.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: OF Roman Quinn (sore left hamstring) was not available. Quinn’s injury is not considered serious.Blue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (strained left calf) had the contents of his locker in Toronto delivered to him at the team’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Fla., where he is working out. In a statement, Donaldson said he wanted all his equipment on hand before starting a rehab assignment. Donaldson has been out since May 28.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Zach Eflin (9-4 Johnny Pesky Jersey , 3.93) starts as Philadelphia returns home to begin a three-game series against Wahsington. RHP Stephen Strasburg (6-7, 4.23) starts for the Nationals.Blue Jays: RHP Sam Gaviglio (3-6, 4.94) starts the opener of a three-game series in Baltimore.
