The Orioles win anther one-run game

Manny Machado made a brilliant defensive play in the top of the 9th and then scored the winning run in the bottom half when Nate McLouth hit a walkoff single as the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-2. I can't say enough positives about Buck Showalter's ballclub that moved 18 games over .500 (80-62) for the first time since the end of the 1997 season.

Take a look here at the complete game that Machado brings to the O's, particularly his dazzling trick play in the 9th.

There are many things that I like about Machado's game including his ability to use the complete field:

A critical key to the Orioles success this season has been their effectiveness in one-run games where the only non-contenders among the top eight teams are the Cleveland Indians:
