3B Manny Machado helped the Diamondbacks score a run Monday night when he was called for obstruction. Arizona RF Gerardo Parra was attempting to steal third on a pitch that sailed high and off the top of C Matt Wieters' glove. As Parra reached the base, he was forced to run around a rotating Machado, who was standing a step off the bag toward home plate. Parra was thrown out easily when Wieters tossed the ball to RHP Scott Feldman covering the plate, but third base umpire Alfonso Marquez signaled for both the obstruction and for the run to score.
