LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-1 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night, ending their five-game skid while stopping the Dodgers’ five-gave winning streak.
Machado, a newly named All-Star starter who turns 24 on Wednesday, sent a 2-2 pitch from Kenta Maeda (7-6) into the upper corner of the left field pavilion, putting the AL East-leading Orioles ahead 4-1. Machado’s 19th homer would have registered 453 feet had it landed unimpeded, according to Statcast.READ MORE: Two Days After Mandate Went Into Effect, The Vaccination Status Of Thousands Of City Employees Remains Unknown
