BALTIMORE (AP) _ Manny Machado hit his third homer in four major league games, Nick Markakis also connected, and the Baltimore Orioles got four hitless innings from their bullpen in a victory over Kansas City.
Machado hit a two-run homer in the second off former Orioles pitcher Bruce Chen (8-10). Machado tripled in his debut Thursday night, homered twice in his second game and doubled in a run Saturday night.
The 20-year-old Machado joined Frank Robinson, Ray Knight and Lee May as the only players to get an extra-base hit in each of their first four games with the Orioles.
