With two outs in the sixth inning Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, Manny Machado made a sparkling play (after initially booting the ball) to throw out Luis Cruz at first. The play pulled him well into foul territory, harkening back to a similar play from fellow Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson in the 1970 World Series.

Machado wins this particular comparison, though, since he was practically in his own dugout before he threw an on-the-fly rope to Chris Davis.

In other remarkable Orioles news from this game, Adam Jones, who just this Friday was seen taking out his offensive frustration on his own helmet—

—hit a two-run home run off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning of a 1-0 game. It was Rivera's second blown save of the season and a 2-1 sweep-avoiding win for the Orioles.
