Major League Baseball chief baseball officer Joe Torre, who handles player discipline, told the Los Angeles Times after the game that he planned to review the play.

"You say to yourself, 'Two games from the World Series.' That's all you've got to say", Counsell said. Repeat it over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player. Infielder Travis Shaw also called it dirty, and Yelich followed up his postgame criticism of Machado by yelling a profane epithet as he walked away from his locker.

"It's a dirty play". He was called for interference on the second one.

"It's a beauty pageant".

Brewers manager Craig Counsell offered his thoughts on Machado, saying, "I guess they got tangled up at first base".

"We all want something to talk about and you guys [the media] do, too, and that's great", he said. "We like him, but now we're out.' You're losing tens of millions of dollars by the second if that becomes the narrative".
