In addressing his future and the possibility of playing in Philly, Manny Machado’s message was the same as everywhere else: he wants to win, he wants to play shortstop, and all he can do until a trade or free agency is enjoy playing with the Orioles. bsun.md/2KGu17l
Two runs in on a slow roller under Chris Davis’ glove at first base, credited as an E3. According to Statcast, it was hit 62.8 mph. Similar batted balls are hits seven percent of the time. The Orioles trail 2-1.
David Hess replaces Yefry Ramírez for the sixth. Ramírez: 5 IP, 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 4 K. Just 65 pitches. He did well but was not well-served by Chris Davis' error. His spot was due up second in the seventh. He'll likely get another chance in Monday's doubleheader.
