Manny Machado debuted on August 9th, playing third base and hitting ninth in an 8-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals while wearing the number 13.
He went 2 for 4 with a triple and a run scored, making him one of his team’s lone bright spots. He hit his first major league triple off Will Smith in the fifth inning, and he later scored on Nick Markakis’ sacrifice fly.
He made an even bigger impact in his second game, a 7-1 victory over the Royals on August 10th, when he hit two home runs and drove in four runs.
Both of Luke Hochevar’s bullets were caught by the same spectator in the left field seats at Camden Yards.
He was the Orioles’ youngest player to hit two home runs, beating out slugger Boog Powell in 1962, and the 12th youngest player in major league history.
On August 12th, he added another big ball to his tally of three home runs in his first 16 at-bats, but that one required a video review.
He’d hit .375 with a 1.286 slugging percentage after four games, and he’d also hit a double the day before. After that, he returned to Earth and batted .262/.294/.445 in 191 at-bats in his debut MLB season.
