MLB wrap: Padres' Manny Machado homers in return to Baltimore


Manny Machado admitted he was nervous for Tuesday's game. 

The Padres infielder returned to Camden Yards for the first time since being traded last July.

"I'm a little more nervous today to come there," Machado said, via ESPN. "I'm never nervous. I guess it's like a weird nervous, in a way. It's just different."

Machado seemed to shake off the nerves almost immediately with a home run in the third inning. It was his 100th career home run at the Orioles' stadium.

The Padres went on to beat Baltimore, 8-3.

Machado, who was selected third overall in the 2010 MLB Draft by the Orioles, finished the night 2 for 4 with two RBIs.

Baltimore sent Machado to the Dodgers before the 2018 trade deadline. He then signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego in the offseason. 

Studs of the Night

DJ LeMahieu hit a lead-off homer to push the Yankees' home run streak to 28 consecutive games, setting an MLB record.

Rangers starter Jesse Chavez threw 6 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and striking out seven in his team's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

Dud of the Night

Trevor Richards allowed seven hits and six earned runs in five innings of work as the Marlins fell to the Nationals, 6-1.

Highlights

This is one way to take the lead. Hunter Dozier hit a go-ahead grand slam against the Indians.

There was no denying Tommy La Stella this inside-the-park home run.

Willians Astudillo with a great catch.

What's Next?

Braves (47-33) at Cubs (43-36), 8:05 p.m. ET — Atlanta rebounded from a series-opening loss to Chicago with a win Tuesday. Now, the NL East-leading Braves will try to keep up their winning ways with Dallas Keuchel (0-1, 5.40 ERA) starting against Chicago's Yu Darvish (2-3, 4.75 ERA).
