Alfonso Soriano robs Manny Machado of home run, acts like he didn’t get it

  • David Whitlock

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles are in a knock down, drag out battle for American League Wild Card position, to the point that their managers even almost scuffled earlier this week.  In a crucial 8th inning (in which the Orioles tied up the game at 5 by the time the dust settled), Yankees OF Alfonso Soriano robbed All-Star 3B Manny Machado of a home run. The rub? He came off the wall, shoulders down, acting as if he didn’t get it.  The joke was on the Orioles crowd when he flipped it out of his glove and threw it back. Watch it unfold courtesy of MLB.com:

The Yankees won the game in the 9th, I know where the 6-5, one run victory came from.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
