Machado went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Friday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox. He continues to crush the ball, going 14-for-40 (.350) over his last 10 games with five homers, 15 RBI and nine runs. Machado's .347/.423/.671 slash line on the season would establish new career highs in all three categories, and by a considerable margin, if he's able to keep it up.
Machado went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Thursday in Baltimore's loss to the Red Sox. Machado cleared the Green Monster with two outs in the ninth inning, when the Orioles were down to their final out losing 6-0. The moon shot, which put Machado in at least a tie for the major-league lead with 14 (pending other Thursday action), wasn't enough to tarnish David Price's complete-game win, but it was the latest highlight of a ridiculous run for Machado. He now has four homers and 13 RBI while going 9-for-28 (.321) in his last seven games. Despite Orioles' prolonged issues, Machado continues to provide MVP-caliber production.
Machado went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, three runs and two RBI to help the Orioles to a 17-1 romp over Tampa Bay on Sunday. Machado continued his torrid start to the season with yet another multi-hit effort, and he's now slashing an absurd .350/.431/.669 through 157 at-bats. The young slugger looks like he's headed for a career-best season at the plate -- one that could land him in the MVP conversation sooner rather than later if he continues to produce at anything close to his current rate.
Machado went 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI in Friday's 9-4 win over the Rays. After launching a two-run shot off Jake Faria in the first inning, Machado blew the game open with a grand slam off Ryne Stanek in the seventh, giving him 12 homers on the year and 150 for his career. Machado now boasts a .354/.440/.667 slash line on the season, and his plate discipline has taken a huge step forward -- he now has a 23:21 BB:K through 38 games, putting him on pace for career bests in walk rate and strikeout rate.
Machado went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and drew a pair of walks in Thursday's win over the Royals. Machado broke out of a mini-slump Thursday by getting on base four times and going yard for the first time this month. He's slashing .350/.439/.629 on the year with 10 home runs and nine doubles. Machado has also walked (23) more than he's struck out (21) through 37 games.
