Orioles Stud of the Week
Maybe a little discipline did this player good.
By Jess Mayhugh. Posted on July 14, 2014
Even though Mother Nature tended to get in the way, we had a couple of great series this week—taking 2 out of 3 from both the Nationals and the Yankees. As we head into the All-Star break, we want to tip our hat to a player who may have lost his cool a few weeks ago, but has been making it up to us ever since.
Stud of the Week for July 7-13:
The third baseman was the star in Monday night's victory over the Nationals, and began the game with three hits in his first three at-bats against Stephen Strasburg. He had two more hits in extra innings and concluded with a two-run homer that capped off the Orioles six-run 11-inning rally. (ESPN came out with a neat stat about his performance).
Since his suspension, Machado is 15-for-31 (.416) and has made some pretty amazing defensive plays. While he certainly looked immature when he flipped out in Oakland, the 22-year-old has since displayed resolve beyond his years by keeping his head down and grinding it out. Let's hope it continues in the second half of the season!
