Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman says Red Sox rookie Michael Chavis had words for him during Tuesday's game

Tensions nearly boiled over during Tuesday's Red Sox-Blue Jays matchup.

Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, a notoriously animated presence on the mound, quick-pitched Red Sox rookie Michael Chavis in the fourth inning and induced a ground ball, but Chavis reached on an error.

The inning would end with Stroman covering first on a play before switching his attention to the Red Sox dugout, where Chris Sale was yelling in his direction. After the game, Stroman said Chavis had some words for him too.

Things didn't escalate after the heated exchange, but there's still time for some fireworks. The Red Sox and Blue Jays will play again Wednesday night and the finale of the four-game set will place Thursday.

David Ortiz shooting: Nine suspects indicted, 10th suspect turns self in

The nine suspects allegedly involved in last Sunday night's shooting of Red Sox legend David Ortiz have been indicted.

According to The Boston Globe, the suspects are being sent to four different prisons “in order to protect the integrity of the investigation" and could be held for up to a year. They are charged with attempted murder, criminal association and illegal possession of weapons.

Jhoel Lopez, a Dominican variety show producer, also was injured in the shooting. Lopez's lawyer, Jose Martinez, said a 10th suspect turned himself in on Friday, per The Globe.

Ortiz continues to recover from his injuries in the intensive care unit at Mass General Hospital in Boston. His wife, Tiffany, has shared encouraging updates on the beloved former slugger along with his daughter, Alex.
