Two nights ago we had a post entitled “Manny Machado makes a ridiculous throw” that showed video of the Orioles third baseman doing spectacular things defensively.
Well, he did it again last night. And just like the first time, the batter robbed of a hit by Machado was Albert Pujols.
I particularly enjoyed the second one because Machado snowcones the ball, goes way into foul territory, sets himself … and still throws out Pujols. Which perhaps says as much about Pujols’ speed as it does Machado’s arm.
