Machado went 4-for-6 with a home run, four RBI and scored twice in Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Machado's two-run blast in the top of the first inning Wednesday was his 29th of the year and his seventh in August, matching April for his highest total in a month this season. The 24-year-old third baseman has hit safely in 19 of his last 22 contests, including a current seven-game streak. Machado is now on pace to surpass last season's career-high 35 home runs.

Machado hit his 27th home run of the year and is on pace to match the 35 dingers he hit a season ago. After a tough July in which he batted .204, the MVP-candidate bounced back nicely in August and is hitting .304 with five home runs.

Machado homered in three straight at-bats during the first three innings of Sunday's 10-2 thrashing of the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He went 0-for-3 the rest of the day, but that may have simply been an act of mercy on Machado's part. His seven RBI set a new single-game career high while he became just the second player in MLB history to hit home runs in each of the first three innings of a game, the first being Carl Reynolds of the White Sox back in 1930.

Machado went 3-for-5 with two RBI and scored a run in Friday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Machado's two-run double in the third inning was his 32nd two-bagger of the year, which is good for second in the majors only behind David Ortiz's 36 doubles. The third baseman went 20-for-98 (.204) in a dreadful July that dropped his overall average 27 points, from .330 to .303. But he's jumped out on the right foot in August, going 6-for-17 with a pair of doubles through the first four games of the month. In Machado's four-year career, he owns a .296/.333/.454 slash line in August, so it's fair to expect his game will get back on track in the coming weeks.

Machado went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, two walks and three runs in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The young slugger represented a significant portion of the Orioles' offense on the night and was a constant thorn in the side of Indians pitching. Machado's 388-foot blast to right center in the eighth brought Baltimore within one, but Roberto Osuna was able to slam the door on them in the ninth. It was the second round-tripper in the last three games for Machado, who's also hit safely in eight of his last nine contests.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old slugger went deep for the first time since July 5, and drove in only his fifth RBI of July. Machado has only slashed .219/.292/.328 in 64 at-bats this month, but is still hitting .314 on the season, with 20 homers and 55 RBI.
