The Orioles ultimately rewarded the brave souls who decided to stick with them throughout the night in a game that was delayed until 9:15 and saw the team fall behind 6-1 by the 3rd inning. The bullpen held the Yankees at six and with two outs in the 9th, Manny Machado crushed a hanging slider into the bullpen for a game winning two-run blast. That was his second home run of the night and 32nd overall. He’s the Hangout Player of the Game!
