Manny Machado Was One-Man Gang Against White Sox

Machado was unstoppable against the White Sox in this series. On Friday, Machado collected three hits including a RBI double. After only getting one hit on Saturday, Machado exploded for three home runs in three innings against the White Sox on Sunday.

The White Sox were unable to stop Machado throughout the series, and the young third basemen essentially help the Orioles win by himself. However, the Orioles were the beneficiaries of two home runs from Pedro Alvarez on Friday. Macahdo entered the series with a .301 batting average, and he concluded the series with his batting average at .307.

With Sunday being the last game of the season between both teams, the White Sox sure are glad Machado can’t torture them. Through his career, Machado has a slash line of .302/.353/.547 against the White Sox in 27 games. Machado’s impressive three home run game on Sunday will be remembered by many White Sox fans for years to come.
