Not much to say today, so I’ll let Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun say it for me:

“In Manny Machado’s second game back from offseason left knee surgery, he recorded his first hit, scored his first run and made his first diving play at third base in the Orioles’ 3-0 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

‘I’m not sure we win that game if Manny wasn’t playing third last night,’ manager Buck Showalter said.”

And so it goes.
