Manny Machado faces Red Sox in first Orioles start
Orioles top hitting prospect Manny Machado made his first start in an exhibition game Saturday against the Boston Red Sox, batting ninth and playing shortstop. The 19-year-old was even more excited when he found out he’d be facing right-hander Josh Beckett, who was a star with the Florida Marlins while Machado was growing up in Miami.
