Manny Machado steps into more NLCS controversy as he clips Jesus Aguilar

null Baseball null null Manny being Manny?Dodgers infielder Manny Machado hasn't been able to keep the spotlight off himself in this year's NLCS, whether with his words to Ken Rosenthal on Monday or his apparent lack of hustle on Saturday. On Tuesday, there wasn't much room for debate as to his intentions. In the bottom of the 10th inning, Machado ran out a ground ball to shortstop (something he doesn't, admittedly, often do) when chaos ensued.This doesn't look great for Manny— Sporting News (@sportingnews) October 17, 2018RIVERA: So Manny doesn't hustle — big deal As the out at first was made, Machado clipped — more kicked, really — Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar on the way by, evidenced in the above GIF.Benches cleared, mean things were said. Play on. In fact, in the bottom of the 13th, Machado and Aguilar seemed to make amends after Machado reached on a single. They shared some words and a brief embrace.Aguilar said Machado apologized to him and they are good. He was less upset about it than his teammates.— Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) October 17, 2018Did you and Jesus Aguilar patch things up? "What stays on the field stays on the field between the lines," Manny Machado said. "We go way back. We played in the minor leagues together. What

happens on the field stays on the field."— J.P.
