#Staturday: Ain’t Manny Grand?

Manny Machado watches a home run fly.

Happy Staturday Birdland! So last night was pretty amazing. Due to Manny Machado’s awesomeness, I have a jumbo-sized Staturday filled with Manny stats. Enjoy!

Manny’s grand slam last night was glorious but he’s not the only grand Oriole:

Manny Machado and Chris Davis lead the majors in grand slams since 2013 with seven apiece.

The Orioles also lead the majors with 28 grand slams since 2013.

Recently, Manny Machado has been on an absolute grand slam roll:

Since April 28th, 2016, the Orioles have recorded 12 grand slams, 6 of which were hit by Manny.

In the last 11 days, Manny Machado has crushed three grand slams. The rest of the American League? Also three grand slams.

In his three-homer, grand slam game, Manny also made some history:

Manny Machado is the first Oriole to record multiple seasons with 3+ grand slams.

Manny is the third player in MLB recorded history (since 1913 via Baseball Reference) to have consecutive seasons with 3+ grand slams.

Manny Machado & A-Rod are the only two players in MLB history to have multiple seasons with 3+ grand slams prior to their age-26 season.

One last fact for this week’s Staturday:

Manny is good at baseball. Keep watching him.
