Machado, running to his first base, extended his left foot and kicked first baseman Jesus Aguilar in the ankle, a maneuver that left Aguilar unhappy and jawing with Machado as he was leaving the field.
Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, writing for The Athletic, asked Machado why he doesn't run hard.
When Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Manny Machado cleated Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar, it caused quite a bit of controversy.
Christian Yelich was the most agitated, blurting out "f-k that motherf-ker" after answering questions at his locker about Machado, who has a history of aggressive play on the bases. "If that's dirty, that's dirty". "I don't know, call it what you want".
With one out in the bottom of the tenth inning, Manny Machado hit a grounder to shortstop and was easily thrown out at first base.
"It looked like it", Aguilar said.

While Machado was unapologetic about his lack of hustle, teammate Enrique Hernandez took to Twitter to apologize for blaming Dodgers fans for not showing enough energy during the team's Game 3 loss to the Brewers.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell offered his thoughts on Machado, saying, "I guess they got tangled up at first base". The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each. "And that's great. But, man, you know, there's easy terms to put this day in and these next four days in that would center on accomplishing your dreams, that make that other stuff really pretty meaningless, and able to worry about it at a different time". So it's just a friendly game, go out, try and compete here.
"It absolutely is. I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can't respect someone who plays the game like that".
Throughout the World Series, there's likely to be speculation about Machado's next destination, whether it's Los Angeles, New York or some place else. Machado's actions in Game 4 later followed. Then Machado hit a slow bouncer to short that was turned into a double play because, as Machado told Ken Rosenthal, he is not about to be "Johnny Hustle" busting it down the line.
