In the seventh inning with the Orioles up 6-1 and looking for more, Bradley did this:
If that wasn’t enough, he came up with this gem with two outs in the ninth with the game tied at 6:
This kept the game tied, as it still is now after 11 innings.
So for those of you scoring at home, Bradley threw out Machado at home in the seventh inning. Then he took away what would have been a go ahead RBI double with two outs in the ninth.
Who knows, but if he keeps treating Machado like this, people are going to start to wonder.
The moral of the story is: don’t upset Jackie Bradley Jr. Or any of his friends, teammates, college buddies, or people from his neighborhood. You may just be the next to get the ‘Machado treatment’ from the Boston outfielder.
