Manny Machado equals Ty Cobb in win over Jays

Guess Seymour Siwoff’s childhood fave “Techno-Cracked” link was busted…so he had plenty of time on his hands.

Amid the Orioles hitting a season-high four homers and tying their season high for runs, Manny Machado put his name in the record book again when he singled in the seventh inning.

It was his fifth straight road game with three hits or more. According to Elias, the only other player younger than 21 with a streak of four or more consecutive road games with at least three hits was Ty Cobb, who had five straight road games with at least three hits from Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 1907. Cobb was also 20 at the time, but a few weeks younger than Machado is now.

Three doubles for the kid last night, three hits to equal Cobb tonight. He’s keeping good company, even without hitting a double in this game.

The best part was when he leaped into the stands and beat up a disabled fan who'd thrown a beer can at Nate McClouth.

Pretty amazing.

When Cobb set the record for consecutive road three hit games by a 20 year old, it was widely considered to be an untouchable record. But Machado goes and re-writes the history books.

The crowd must have been on the edge of their seats when Machado came up with a chance to get his third hit in his fifth straight road game at the age of 21 or younger. It must have been like the last out of a no-hitter.

After a decade and a half, Tom, Oriole fans will take every bit of positive news they can get, Tom. Don't be a Debby Downer.

Machado is well on his way to becoming the 2nd youngest MVP runner up ever to Miguel Cabrera.

Ty still clings to the all-time record for having four or more consecutive road games with at least three hits for an under-21 player with consecutive B's in his name.

The radio announcers were aware of the record and they are rather unexciting to listen to. Anyhow announcer 1 points out he tied the record, and that CObb was younger.

ANnouncer 2: "That's one of those made up records."

pause..

ANnouncer 2: A better record that he just broke is the Orioles record for consecutive 3 hit games, he broke the record held by guys like Don Buford.

I cant recall if he said he broke or tied the Oriole team record, or whether it was road games or all games, but it was just hilarious to hear these guys say one record was made up, but a team record of the very same sort was so important. And Don Buford you know, not Ty Cobb.
