The most recent incident between the teams occurred when Red Sox starter John Lackey plunked Tampa's Matt Joyce with a pitch. Benches emptied, and after the game the Rays had some harsh words for Lackey. Rays manager Joe Maddon said Lackey's actions were "really inappropriate" and called him a "bad teammate". Rays infielder Sean Rodriguez said, I played with (Lackey), I thought he was more of a man. But maybe hes changed, I dont know."
