What was that Buck Showalter line? “If they keep poking Manny he may hit 100…” that poking Buck was referring to is those baseballs Boston pitchers repeatedly threw at the Orioles star.
Manny responded like a champion, no he didn’t charge the mound and incur a multi-game suspension instead he let his bat and glove do all the talking.
Thursday night his bat didn’t talk it screamed! Machado’s 3-run monster bomb was the game-changer and his third homer of the Fenway Park series.
The Orioles have hit a ton of homers since 2009 but none hit harder and with more purpose than Manny’s 456 foot message deep into the Boston night.
