BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has been suspended for five games and fined for intentionally throwing his bat on the field during the game against Oakland on Sunday.

Barring an appeal, the suspension will begin with Tuesday's game against visiting Boston.

Machado let his bat fly in the direction of third base after swinging at a pitch from Oakland's Fernando Abad in the eighth inning. The bat-toss came during a plate appearance in which Abad threw a tight pitch to Machado.

After the bat went soaring, both benches emptied. Machado and Abad were ejected.

It was the second time in three days Machado lost his temper. On Friday, he screamed in the face of Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson after being tagged in the chest.
