Orioles second baseman Robert Andino says he wasn't tipping the location of pitches in Baltimore's game against the New York Yankees on Monday night.
Andino and New York catcher Russell Martin had an angry exchange after the Yankees' 6-2 win. Andino hit a leadoff double off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning and did not advance.
Andino said Tuesday that Martin accused him of indicating to Baltimore hitters the location of Rivera's pitches.
Andino said the disagreement was ''a misunderstanding'' and insisted he did no wrong.
He said, ''I don't play like that.''
He said it was ''baseball stuff'' and that ''everything is cool now.''
Asked if he thought the Yankees might retaliate, Andino said, ''I don't know, I ain't a future teller.''
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said, ''You move on.''

Allen, a big left-handed swinger, doesn't have a great deal of major league playing time; in 374 career plate appearances he's hit just .205/.291/.375 and struck out almost...
