Remember when people were worried about Manny Machado making the transition to third base? That was funny.
The Orioles 20 year old infielder made a veteran defensive play on Wednesday night that helped set up Nate McLouth’s walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth inning. Machado fooled Rich Thompson on a pump fake throw to first that forced the Rays pinch runner off the bag at third.
Then the next inning Machado scored the game winning run.
