Manny Machado charged Yordano Ventura Tuesday night after Ventura hit him with a pitch, and the Orioles shortstop/third baseman got the best of the Royals pitcher.
Jimmy's Famous Seafood in Baltimore couldn't be happier, so it's thanking Machado by offering him free crab cakes, steamed crabs and meal prep for life.

Ventura is known for throwing at batters, and starting brawls. Last year, he called Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista a "nobody" on Twitter. This season, he's a tepid 4-4 with a 5.32 ERA. Meanwhile, Machado leads the American League with 15 home runs, 37 RBI, 22 doubles and a .604 slugging percentage.
Ventura and Machado were both ejected with the Orioles up 5-1. Baltimore won, 9-1, and Ventura took the loss.[MOBILE-AD_ad_dx_middle]
Jimmy's Famous Seafood is actually not the first restaurant to offer such a proposal to a brawl hero. Last month, Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth offered Rougned Odor free barbecue for life after his punch on Bautista.
