Machado Hits 2 Home Runs As Orioles Down Royals

By  | 

Manny Machado thrust himself into the Orioles' record book in his second major league game, hitting two home runs and driving in four runs to carry Baltimore past the Kansas City Royals 7-1 on Friday night.

After going 2 for 4 in his debut on Thursday, Machado hit a solo shot in the fifth inning and a three-run drive in the sixth. Both homers came off Luke Hochevar (7-10) and landed in the left-field seats.

At 20 years and 35 days old, Machado is the youngest Oriole ever to have a multi-homer game. Boog Powell was 20 years and 258 days old when he homered twice against Minnesota in May 1962.

Machado also became the 12th-youngest major leaguer since 1918 to hit at least two home runs in a game.
