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.
