Manny Machado 3B BAL Oct 10 '12
Manny Machado became the second-youngest player in postseason history to hit a home run when he took Hiroki Kuroda deep in the fifth inning Wednesday.
Only Andruw Jones at 19 back in 1996 was younger than the 20-year-old. Kuroda hung a slider to Macado, and he deposited it over the left-center field fence for his first hit of the series. Ryan Flaherty also hit a solo blast, but that's all the Orioles could come up with in the extra innings loss.
