Revenge is a dish best served with ridiculous exit velocity.
Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who has been targeted by Red Sox pitchers on more than one occasion over the past few weeks, exacted payback with a mammoth home run Thursday night at Fenway Park.
The home run traveled an estimated 466 feet, which is good for Machado’s second-longest home run of the season. His longest was a 470-foot blast to dead center field at Yankee Stadium. Thursday’s dinger exited his bat at 113.6 mph.
Not only did Machado announce his presence with authority, but he mimicked former Red Sox great David Ortiz with a leisurely stroll around the bags. Statcast marked the trot at 29.8 seconds.
Machado’s bomb was good for three runs, and the Orioles tacked on a few more Cheap NFL Jerseys USA in an 8-3 win.
Scherzer’s absence leaves Chris Archer and Marcus Stroman as the top starting options for Team USA.
Fulms was part of something special in college. His Vanderbilt squad won the 2014 College World Series, and Fulmer started the winner-take-all championship game against Virginia — he struck out five in 5 1/3 innings, allowing just three hits and two runs (one unearned). Vanderbilt made it back to the CWS final again in 2015, but that time Virginia took home the title.
