"During Tuesday night's Red Sox-Orioles game, it was reported to Red Sox security that a racial slur was used in a comment from one fan to another fan", the Red Sox said in a statement released Wednesday. "I'm going to do whatever I have to do to keep this thing going".

With the unfortunate news that SP Steven Wright will have season-ending surgery, the Red Sox need pitchers other than Porcello and Sale to step up.

The Boston Red Sox have officially placed infielder Marco Hernandez on the club's 10-day disabled list, the team announced on Thursday afternoon. "I'm trying to make a living for myself and my family".

Before the game, the All-Star player said he felt "it was just the right time" to speak out.

That's what happened on Thursday as a hitting mat turned Fenway Park into a driving range for Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz.

Kennedy said 34 people were ejected for various reasons Monday night and reiterated the team's "zero tolerance" policy for such incidents.

The right-hander struggled in his first two starts for Pawtucket, allowing 16 runs (including five home runs) over 13 innings.

"I mean, if you're going to f--ing hit me, hit me".

"It's unprecedented, so it may be hard (to enforce)", Kennedy said, according to the Herald.

Torre held a conference call with the two managers, Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski and Orioles GM Dan Duquette Wednesday afternoon.

"Yes, that's what I said, and I stand by it", Hennick said the man told him.

"My strong preference consistent with baseball's long tradition is to keep our franchises in the markets where they now play", he said.

The pitch from Sale was low, around Machado's knees, certainly a factor in MLB's decision.

You'd like to think one use of a racist taunt, especially the n-word, would be enough to get someone ejected from a ballpark. The fan had been permanently barred from Fenway after directing a racial slur at another supporter Tuesday. "He let it be known that's what we go through".

"Just to be clear", Hennick said he then responded to the man, repeating his words back to him once again.
