Still The Manny

Padres 8, Orioles 3 : Still The Manny – Manny Machado Machado homers & drives in 2 runs in his return to Baltimore, his 100th career homerun @ Camden Yards & the first as a member of the opposing team as the Padres rout the O’s. San Diego homers 4 times as a team as Fernando Tatis Jr. blasts a 2-run shot (#9) in the 2nd, Machado adds a solo shot (#17) in the 3rd, Manuel Margot hits a solo shot (#4) & Francisco Mejia adds another (#2) in the 5th. Machado adds an RBI single in the 4th as well for San Diego. Padres starter Logan Allen is solid all day, allowing just 2 runs in 6 innings & the San Diego bullpen works 3 shutout innings in relief. Machado recieves a standing ovation from the crowd of 21,644 in his 1st plate appearance but strikes out looking against O’s opener Jimmy Yacabonis. Baltimore has now lost 12 of 13 & will look to bounce back as they host the series finale today.
