Major League Baseball has fined Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado an undisclosed amount because of the way he ran into Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar on Tuesday night, according to reports.

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. Aguilar appeared upset and the two exchanged words.

Game 4 of the NLCS between the Brewers and Dodgers was full of drama.

Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg.

It's part of an operation that includes attempts to influence the 2018 mid-term elections in November, Reuters news reported . An itemized budget for Project Lakhta totaled about $1 million US dollars for February 2017, according to the complaint.

Nothing happened beyond that spirited argument, and the two principals made up after Machado singled in the 13th inning.

"A dirty play by a dirty player", fumed Milwaukee's Most Valuable Player candidate Christian Yelich.

"It looked like it", Aguilar said.

If the Dodgers win on either Friday or Saturday, they'll advance to Machado's first World Series, enhancing his visibility.

It's not the first time Machado's intentions have been questioned during the series.

"You saw the replay, probably", Machado said. "You can't respect someone who plays the game like that".

When Machado was asked again about the play, he said, "I was trying to get over him and hit his foot. If that's dirty, that's dirty, I don't know, call it what you want". With two runners on and one out in the first, Machado went to the plate and, as is customary with a player's first at-bat of the game, said hello to home-plate umpire Jim Wolf.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell wasn't concerned the incident would distract from his team's focus in the best-of-seven series. "I try to go out there and win for my team". These are not the ways you want to get your name in the news ahead of free agency.

No argument there. Machado has been playing at the speed of Manny since he broke in with the Orioles in 2012, and for the most part, it hasn't been a big problem.
